Abstract: The aim of this study was to isolate Enterobacteria and Pseudomonas from the oral cavity of hospitalized newborns (NB) and determine their prevalence and the sensitivity profile to most commonly used antibiotics for this age group. Samples from the oral cavity of NB from 24 to 48 h age were collected using swabs. The samples were inoculated on MacConkey agar, incubated and the colonies counted and identified. For each strain, the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) was determined using agar dilution test. T… Show more

“…The oral cavity is a sterile human site until birth, when it changes over time 1,2,3 . The introduction of microorganisms may occur during birth, through contact with the microbiota of the amniotic cavity, aspiration of contaminated amniotic fluid, contact with microorganisms present in the birth canal, genital secretions, or maternal feces 1 . At birth or soon after birth, colonization begins 3 .…”

“…Due to their strong ability to adhere and persist on abiotic and biotic surfaces, they often cause biofilm-associated infections, which are clinically relevant and difficult-to-treat [10]. In particular, P. aeruginosa is responsible for apical periodontitis, pulp necrosis, pulpitis or mandibular/maxillary alveolitis [11] and its organization as a biofilm causes a 4-fold enhancement in drug resistance [12]. Additionally, the high prevalence of S. aureus has been described in plaque and tongue samples from systemically healthy subjects with periodontal health, gingivitis or chronic periodontitis [13].…”
