Journal of Medicinal Plants Research Phytochemical properties and antimicrobial activity of Buchholzia coriacea and Psychotria microphylla leaf extracts on bacterial pathogens isolated from aquatic environments in Nigeria
Extended spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) are enzymes that give some Gram-negative bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Klebsiella species the exceptional ability to resist the antimicrobial action of third-generation cephalosporins including cefotaxime, ceftazidime and ceftriaxone. This study detected the presence of ESBL-producing E. coli isolat...
The increasing prevalence of antibiotic resistant bacteria in the community is a public health issue because this phenomenon compromises our ability to effectively treat infectious diseases since these organisms such as those that express metallo-β-lactamase (MBL) are usually resistant to a wide variety of antibiotics. This study investigated the f...
Metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs) are carbapenem-hydrolyzing enzymes that give Gram-negative bacteria including Escherichia coli and Klebsiella species the exceptional ability to ward-off the antimicrobial onslaught of the carbapenems such as imipenem and meropenem. This study detected the possible occurrence of MBL-producing E. coli and Klebsiella speci...
