Abstract

Pseudornonas aeruginosa is an important pathogen, it causes 10% - 20% of infection in most hospitals. Ps. aeruginosa infection is especially prevalent among patients with burn wounds, cystic fibrosis, acute leukemia, organ transplants, and intravenous drug addiction. Patients who are hospitalized for extended periods are usually colonized by this organism and are at increased risk of developing infection. The present study was carried out with samples of patients, reported with urinary tract infection and lung ailments. Among the 100 samples of urine, sputum, pus and bronchial washings, 87 samples showed positive results to Ps. aeruginosa. Further antibiotic sensitive test was conducted to determine appropriate anti-microbial therapy against Ps.aeruginosa . The results showed that amickasin and carbenicillin are the most active antibiotic sensitive compounds against Ps.aeruginosa.
