Antibiotic Resistance Pattern of A Biofilm Forming Bacteria, Isolated From Implanted Catheters

Suraj Shinde*, Madhumati Patil**.

Abstract
Background & Objectives: Medical devices have become an essential part of modern health care system, but use of such devices have led to the adhesion of microorganisms on their surface and leading to the formation of biofilm. These biofilm act as a nidus for infection leading to device related infections. Microorganisms associated with biofilm formation are tolerant and resistant to antibiotics and host immune response, which increases the difficulties for the clinical treatment of biofilm infection. This study was done to know the prevalence of bacterial biofilm formation on the retrieved implants and the antibiotic resistance pattern among these biofilm forming isolates. Method: A total 148 retrieved catheter tips were subjected for culture. All the isolates were identified by standard biochemical reaction and antibiotic susceptibility testing was done as per CLSI guidelines. Detection of biofilm is done by using tissue culture plate method. Results: A total of 50 isolates are recovered from 148 catheter tips. Among these, 24(48%) were biofilm producers. S. aureus and S.epidermidis showed strong biofilm formation. A high antibiotic resistance pattern was seen among the biofilm producers when compared to non- biofilm producers. Conclusion: Bacterial biofilms are an important virulence factor associated with chronic nosocomial infection. Detection of biofilm forming organisms can help in appropriate antibiotic choice. Significant correlation between biofilm production and multidrug resistance was observed in our study. [Suraj S NJIRM 2017; 8(6):55-59]

Key words: Biofilm, Catheters, Tissue culture plate method, Multidrug resistant organisms.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
