Background: One of the most difficult problems in hospitals and an important issue in therapy is the occurrence of an increased number of resistant strains to antibiotics. Worldwide, researches are carried over for the AB resistance phenomenon, in the following directions: Fundamental research for better knowledge of the natural and acquired resistance mechanisms and development of surveillance networks.Objective: The objective of our study was the establishment of the AB resistance pattern of isolated strains to the most frequently used AB for treatment.Methods: Identification and the resistance profiles of the isolated strains were performed with API20E, disk diffusion method and Vitek2 system.rnrnResults: Strains of MRSA, E. coli, Klebsiella, Enterobacter, Acinetobacter and Pseudomonas were isolated from hospitalized patients. The tested strains showed a high resistance both to common AB and to those recently discovered.rnrnConclusion: There was a significant increase in the prevalence of AB resistance among the most common pathogens of nosocomial infections. Consistent efforts towards rational use of AB are going to influence the evolution of bacteria AB resistance patterns.
