ABSTRACT:
One of the most common infectious diseases of humans is urinary tract infections (UTIs), with Escherichia coli responsible for >80% of cases worldwide. A sum of 20 urinary isolates of E. coli were subjected to antibiotic susceptibility testing and detected for iutA gene by PCR. We found increased percentage of isolates were shown to be resistant to different antibiotics and 70% of them were resistant to imipenem drug. 15% of them were harboring iutA gene by PCR. This implies that this gene is maybe one of the important virulent trait in association with urinary tract infections.
