ABSTRACT:
Vancomycin -resistant Enterococci (VRE), are the bacterial strains of the genus Enterococcus that are resistant to vancomycin. Enterococci bacteria live in our intestines and on our skin, usually without causing problems. But if they become resistant to antibiotics they can cause serious infections, especially in people who are ill or weak. This study is aims to detect the vancomycin resistance in 20 clinical isolates of Enterococcus spp. We found varied resistance pattern by disc diffusion method and none of the isolates was found to be vancomycin resistance. As Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci (VRE) is emerging to be a threat in nosocomial settings, it is very important to check the same for prompt and accurate therapy.
