Isolation and Diagnosis of Bacteria Causing Urinary Tract Infection in Humans and Studying Their Sensitivity to Antibiotics

Nesreen Agha


The bacterial pathogens associated with urinary tract infection were studied. The study examined 185 urine samples taken from patients who were visiting and residing in hospitals and outpatient clinics in Homs, Syria between 1/7/2016 and 1/10/2016 suffering from symptoms of urinary tract infection. It was found that 120 samples showed positive results by 65%. While 65 samples (65%) gave negative results. The results of the study showed that the number of female urinary tract infection was more than males, and the rate of infection in males for females was 3: 1. The results also showed that the number of women with diabetes among the total number of women with urinary tract infection was 26, Males with diabetes were infected with 10 samples. In the case of female infections, 35 of the 89 samples of pregnant women were found to be 39%. Biochemistry and biochemical assays showed E. coli control with the highest rate of 56% followed by Enterobacter by 17%, Klebsiella by 12%, Pseudomonas by 8% and Staphylococcus by 7%. The results showed a clear variation in the responsiveness of studied isolates to the antibodies used. E.coli showed a high resistance of 69% to CTX while 73% high sensitivity to AMK. Enterobacter showed 50% resistance to CTX And a 95% high sensitivity to F (300). Klebsiella showed resistance to CTX, 50%, high sensitivity to 80% F, Staphylococcus showed 50% resistance to AMK, and 75% sensitivity to F, CIP, CTX , CRP and Pseudomonas showed a 100% high resistance to CRP and showed a 50% sensitivity towards. Increased resistance to cephalosporin compounds was observed.
