Antibiotic Susceptibility Pattern of Streptococcus Pneumoniae in South India by Using E-Test Techniques

R. Kadhar Nivas, Dr. M. Boominathan

Objective To analyse, estimate the consequence and antibiotic susceptibility pattern of Streptococcus Pneumoniae isolates various clinical specimens from different places. Materials and Methods 105 clinical strains were recovered from different hospital in thanjavur, tamilnadu state at India from January 2014 to Jun 2014. All the isolates of streptococcus pneumonia were obtained from fresh material using routine methods and were identified using conventional methods by optochin susceptibility. These Strains were reidentified by conventional test after arriving biotechnology laboratory at thanjavur. Antibiotic Susceptibility test for isolated organism was done using by E-Test method. Results Out of 105 isolates of Streptococcus pneumonia 69 (65.71 %) were sputum/respiratory in origin.18 (17.14 %) Ear swabs, 3 (2.85 %) Throat swabs, 6 (5.71 %) Eye swabs, 3 (3.15 %) pus swabs, 2 (1.90 %) CSF, 4 (3.80 %). Conclusion This aim is not only to reduce the morbidity and mortality in the patients but also to control the emergence and spread of resistance among Streptococcus pneumoniae. Continuous surveillance of the use of antibiotics helps in preserving the effectiveness of antibiotics. The results from our study strongly emphasize the need for continuous epidemiological monitoring of antibiotic resistant. s
