Abstract
The study reported the isolation and characterization of antibiotic resistant-Salmonella species from stool samples of diarrhoeal patients in Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex, Ile-Ife, Osun state, Nigeria. A total of 69 isolates were obtained from 187 stool samples of diarrhoeal patients (ages 3 to 72) cultured on Salmonella-Shigella agar plates. All the 69 isolates were confirmed and identified as Salmonella sp. based on cultural, morphological and standard biochemical tests. The susceptibility of the isolates to fluoroquinole and cephalosporin antibiotics was done on Mueller-Hinton agar plates. Molecular characterization of resistance plasmid factor and resistance genes in 20 selected multiple antibiotic resistant isolates were done using PCR amplification techniques. All the Salmonella isolates were resistant to nitrofurantoin, followed by ceftriazone (97.2%), gentamycin (94.2%), cotrimozazole (91.3%), amoxicillin (88.4%) and tetracycline (66.7%), ciprofloxacin (42%) pefloxacin (39%) and ofloxacin (37.6%) being the least. About 53.6% of the Salmonella isolates exhibited multiple antibiotic resistance (MAR) to at least four antibiotics with 23 different antibiotypes. All the 20 selected MAR- isolates haboured multiple plasmids ranging from 1.46 kbp to 23.13 kbp and had blaCTX gene targeted between 120 to 550 bp fragment and gyrase A gene at the Quinolone Resistant-Determining Region with fragment ranging between 282 to 311bp. All the selected MAR-Isolates did not have inv A gene.
