Isolation and identification of urinary catheter associated bacteria and study of in vitro antibacterial activity of methanolic and petroleum ether leaf extracts of Ipomoea mauritiana Jacq. against bacteria isolated from urinary catheters

Author(s): Pavan HV, Dr. S Mahadeva Murthy and Dr. N Lakshmi Devi
Abstract: The enormous increase in the use of urinary catheters in the hospitals has resulted in an increase in catheter associated urinary tract infections. Escherichia coli is the most predominant uropathogen involved in urinary tract infections in patients catheterized for long periods. The bacteria isolated from patients catheterized for long term were identified by biochemical methods and then confirmed by molecular methods like polymerase chain reaction and sequencing of 16srRNA gene. The antibacterial activity of medicinal plant Ipomoea mauritiana was evaluated against bacteria isolated from urinary catheters by disk diffusion method.
