Pathogenic fungi with very low inherent virulence are now increasingly causing life-threatening infections in a large number of immunocompromised individuals. Incidence of these infections has paralleled the emergence of acquired immune deficiency syndrome and other macro disruptive procedures that result in lowered resistance of the host to fungal...
Tiger nuts (Cyperus esculentus) are tuber crops that are consumed as snack, for their medical and nutritional values. Thus, if exposed to microbial contamination, can impose public health treat. This present study was aimed at analysis of airborne bacteria in environmental exposed tiger nuts (Cyperus esculentus) sold by street vendors in Abakaliki,...
Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) remains a major cause of both community and healthcare-associated infections. This study was designed to determine the prevalence and antibiogram of healthcare-associated MRSA (HA-MRSA) in Ebonyi State, Nigeria. A total of 315 clinical samples were obtained from government-owned and private-owned h...
Objective: To determine the prevalence of blaTEM, blaSHV, and blaCTX-M genes among extended spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae of clinical origin. Methods: Exactly 276 isolates were obtained from patients who met the definition of wound and urinary tract infection between December 2016 and November 2017. In...
The antibacterial activity of Monodora myristica, Xylopia aethiopica, Piper guineense, Tetrapleura tetraptera against selected human pathogens like Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumonia, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhi and Streptococcus mutans were ascertained using standard microbiological procedures. The herbaceou...
Background Malaria is a debilitating disease with high morbidity and mortality in Africa, commonly caused by different species of the genus Plasmodium in humans. Misdiagnosis is a major challenge in endemic areas because of other disease complications and technical expertise of the medical laboratory staff. Microscopic method using Giemsa-stained b...
