Role of Antibiotics against Staphylococcus Aureus
Ruturaj Solanki | Nimisha Patel 
Abstract: An increasing antimicrobial resistance has resulted in morbidity and mortality from treatment failure and increased health care costs. The most common method sensitivity test with help of cup agar method to aim of antimicrobial susceptibility testing is to determine the lowest concentration of existing or even new antimicrobial agent which inhibit the growth of organisms. The overuse of antibiotics is accelerating the bacterial resistance, and therefor there is a need to reduce the amount of antibiotics used for treatment. The novel concept light assisted that consist of UV irradiation treatment followed by a different antibiotics treatment can significantly reduce the amount of antibiotics needed for eradicating mature bacterial biofilms. Wound infection or other infections produced by antibiotics-resistant bacterial strain are particularly difficult to manage. This study examined the effectiveness of UV light treatment in killing antibiotic-resistant strain in vitro. Antibiotic resistance strain S. aureus is more susceptible to killing effects of UV.
