The present study included 210 inpatients, out of them 180 were diagnosed as suspected cases of sepsis in the period over 12 months from December 2018 to December 2019, at a private hospital in Cairo, Egypt. Out of 210 investigated cases 180 (85.7%) were infected. Single bacterial isolates were recovered from 120 cases (66.7%), while 60 (33.3%) cases were found to be carrying more than one bacterial isolate. The results of the current study revealed that 34.4% (62/180) of isolates were Gram-positive and 65.6% (118/180) were Gram-negative.
Streptococcus pyogenes is the most common bacterial agent of sore throat. However, prescription of antibiotics due to clinical diagnosis only could disturb the microbiota and result in antibiotic resistant. 591 throat swabs samples were obtained from 308 participants. Swabs culture followed by isolation of all types of bacterial growth, which were subjected to morphological, microscopic and biochemical analysis.
The Department of Microbiology aims to advance and disseminate knowledge in the fields of basic and applied microbiology by publishing Open Access peer-reviewed papers. Along with research, reviews, case reports, short communications and opinions, the Department invites on topics related to the history and sociology of this key discipline, as well as comments on new findings in microbiology.
The Department of Microbiology encourages submissions in the following areas; however, the accepted papers are not constrained only to the listed areas.
The Editors actively encourages Clinical aspects of basic research and trials that will have an impact on the understanding of health and disease. Case reports, focused research on a broad range of disciplines as well as experimental papers may be submitted. Besides, authors may contribute short reviews (by invitation from the Editor) and letters to the editor. This journal adheres to the policies recommended by The Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
