Most of the bacteria of Enterobacteriaceae family are pathogenic and cause urinary tract infections, Pneumonia and diarrheal diseases. It was noticed that antimicrobials resistance of bacteria is increasing day by day that brought expanded healthcare costs due to morbidity and mortality from treatment failures. In the present study three of gram negative bacteria Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Proteus mirabilis of Enterobacteriaceae family were considered. Antibiotic susceptibility of these bacteria was checked against clinical samples by Kirby Bauer test commonly known as disc diffusion method. Eleven commercially available antibiotics i.e. Fosmomycin (FOS), Imipenem (IMP), Tazobactum (TZP), Meropenem (MEM), Amikacin (AK), Tobramycin (TOB), Nnitrofurantoin (F), Doxycycline (DO), Norfloxacin (NOR), Gentamycin (CN), and Nalidixic Acid (NA) were used to check efficacy against selected microbes.
Comparison of results produced by these bacteria showed variability in resistance pattern as FOS>IPM>MEM>AK>F>F>TZP>CN>TOB>DO>NOR>NA. Fosmomycin, Imipenem, Amikacin and Meropenem were found as most effective one among all selected antibiotics
