<i>In vitro</i> Antibacterial Susceptibility of <i>Arcobacter butzleri</i> Isolated from Different Sources

Abstract: ABSTRAcT. The objective of this study was to determine the antibiotic susceptibility of Arcobacter spp. isolated from various sources. Seventy Arcobacter spp. isolates were tested for their susceptibility to 13 antimicrobial agents. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing was performed by using the agar disc diffusion method on Mueller-Hinton agar supplemented with 5% defibrinated sheep blood. The antibiotics tested included enrofloxacin, erythromycin, streptomycin, gentamycin, rifampin, tetracycline, ampicillin,… Show more

“…Arcobacters were reported to be susceptible to aminoglycosides and tetracycline (4,29,31,39,40). The present study also demonstrated that all Arcobacter isolates were sensitive to amikacin and oxytetracycline, with the exception that 1 A. skirrowii showed an intermediate level of resistance to amikacin.…”

“…Therefore, these antibiotics may be preferred for the treatment of disease(s) caused by these species in humans and animals, but the existence of resistant strains should be born in mind, as some isolates were resistant to some of those antibiotics (see Table for details). However, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid and ampicillin resistances (at the rate of 20% and 78%, respectively) among A. butzleri isolates have recently been reported (31). Although chloramphenicol was reported to be very active against A. butzleri in an earlier study (32), it is interesting that in this study 2 strains of both A. skirrowii and A. butzleri were found to be resistant to this antibiotic.…”

“…A. butzleri was as yet reported to be highly sensitive to tetracycline and aminoglycosides, hence they were recommended as the first choice agents in the treatment of Arcobacter spp. infections in humans and animals (Abay et al 2012, Shah et al 2012, Unver et al 2013.…”
