 en Beta lactamase Production by Staphylococcus aureus check for this species in other resources from Children with Sporadic Diarrhoea in Ibadan and Ago-Iwoye, Nigeria
Efuntoye, M.O. & Amuzat, M.A.

Abstract

Isolates of Staphylococcus aureus check for this species in other resources from children aged 5 years and below with sporadic diarrhoea were tested for their ability to produce beta-lactamase enzyme. Of the 95 isolates tested 79 (83.2%) were beta-lactamase-producing strains. The study confirms that majority of clinical isolates of S. aureus from diarrhoeic children acquire resistance to the beta-lactam antibiotics as a result of beta-lactamase activity.
