Abstract:   (151 Views)
Background & Aims:  This study has the objective to examine the resistance of the clinical isolates of Acinetobacter lwoffii to antibiotics.
Materials & Methods: The samples, that were isolated from the patients admitted to Gazi Hospital in Turkey, were defined by the MicroScan 5 WalkAway Identification System (Siemens, Germany) in terms of species and were thus collected.  Then, the resistance pattern of 10 isolated A.lwoffii strains was assessed to 11 antibodies and four antibiotic compounds in this study.
Results: 50% of the strains were found to be Multidrug-Resistant (MDR). Tigecycline was proved to be the most effective antibiotic with 80% sensitivity and 10% intermediate sensitivity.
Conclusion: The MDR A.lwoffii strains were observed in the clinical isolate of Gazi hospital patients. Hence, the identification and investigation of the model of antibiotic resistance of the microorganisms is necessary.
