Detection of newly defined superantigenic toxin genes and coagulase gene polymorphism in Staphylococcus aureus isolates

The current study aims to use coagulase (coa) polymorphism gene to identify Staphylococcus aureus isolated from stool samples, evaluate the efficiency of these methods in discriminating variable strains, and compare these subtypes with antibiotypes. A total of 100 specimens were collected from patients in Babylon province, Iraq, between July 2016 and September 2016. Twenty S. […]

Molecular Assessment of Bacterial Diversity in Women with Breast Infections

In the present study, a total of 100 clinical samples were collect and processed from patient suffering from breast infection or mastitis carried out in two main place in Babylon province i.e. Al-Hilla General Teaching Hospital (breast cancer consolation) and outpatient clinics, which they were diagnosis as breast infection or mastitis by the physician after […]

Molecular detection and antimicrobial resistance of Clostridium perfringens isolated from diabetic patients and bullet wounds

Clostridium perfringens is a major cause of gas gangrene. The morbidity of C. perfringens is connected with producing toxins. This cross-sectional study was designed to isolate, genetically diagnose, and study the antibiotic susceptibility patterns of C. perfringens isolated from clinical samples. Different wound swabs (from diabetic patients, cellulitis, and bullet wounds) were taken from 140 […]

Molecular Detection, purification, and characterization of Streptolysin-O from Streptococcus pyogenes

The present study included a total of 200 throat swab were collected from patients suffering from pharyngitisthe isolates were identified according to cultural , biochemical tests , VITEK 2 system compact. Molecular detection of streptolysin O (SLO) gene by using specific primers was also studied and the results show that all isolates contain this gene […]
