DRUG SENSITIVITY OF DIFFERENT BACTERIA ISOLATED FROM VARIOUS SOURCES OF DRINKING WATER FROM BANG A LORE DISTRICT, INDIAD. PARAMESHA NAIK, USHA MALIN AND R. K. SOMASFIEKAR
A total of 150 isolates obtained from different sources of drinking water (Well, supply water, tube well) were subjected to invitro sensitivity test against 7 antimicrobial agents. The overall susceptibility of the isolates were highest in Ciprofloxacin (91.33%) followed by Norfloxacin (86.66%), Gentamicin (83.33%) and Trimethoprime (74.66%). Sensitivity to other antimicrobial agents tested in Furazolidone (23.33%), Naliciixic acid (18.0%) and Cefotaxime (6.6%) was found to be less than 25%. It was found that Cefotaxime was the least effective drug.
