Resistance of escherichia cdli from urinary tract infections:- a study on wintomylon and co-trimoxazole student
The research use conducted to Btudy the resistance of Escheclchia coll from urinary tract Infections to both Co-trimaxazole and Uintomylon. The specimens mere collected from the Kenyatta National Hospital and as such the results can only be related to this hospital, though it Is expected that variations in most other hospitals, especially those in major Kenyan towns would not be very great. After the research had been conducted and results recorded, it was found that E. coli from urinary tract infections was more sensitive to uintomylon than to Co-trimoxazole. It uas therefore recommended that due to the large difference in the response of the organism to the two drugs, it would be better if lilintomylon were used for those urinary tract Infections where E. coli had been diagnosed as the causative agent rather than Co-trimoxazole. This, obviously is subject to the contra-indications involved pertaining to Individual patients.
