Abstract:

A multiple drug resistant (MDR) bacteria are a class of bacteria which is resistant to different classes of antibiotics and cause severe complications in humans as well as animals. This study investigated for isolation and identification and the antimicrobial resistance patterns of P. aeruginosa clinical isolates obtained from hospitalized patients. The results confirmed the occurrence of drug resistant strains of P. aeruginosa. In this study, molecular identification of 16SrRNA was performed and phylogenetic tree was constructed using a nearly complete sequence within the 16S rDNA gene P. aeruginosa. The result shows that the isolate belongs to the species P. aeruginosa. Amikacin, ciprofloxacin and Ceptazidine were found to be the most effective antimicrobial drugs. Therefore calls for a very judicious, rational treatment regimens prescription by the physicians to limit the further spread of antimicrobial resistance among the P. aeruginosa strains
