 en Haemolysin and Serum Resistance Profiles of Bacteria Isolates from Blood Culture
Egbe, C.A. & Enabulele, O.I.

Abstract

Haemolysin production and serum resistance ability of bacteria isolates from blood culture were investigated using standard microbiological technique. Enterobactor species were the bacteria isolates with the highest prevalence of β-haemolysin production while klebsiella check for this species in other resources species were the least. No strain of Citrobacter freundii check for this species in other resources , Proteus vulgaris check for this species in other resources , Alcaligenes check for this species in other resources species and coagulase negative Staphylococcus check for this species in other resources produced haemolysis. No bacteria species was sensitive to the bactericidal action of normal human serum. There was no association between haemolysin production and resistance to ciprofloxacin, ceftriaxone and ceftazidime. Conclusively, bacteria agents of septicemia are very virulence and urgent treatment is advocated to stem the tile of associated sequelae.
