Abstract
Antimicrobial resistance has become a major health issue in this era. The resistance is more common in Gram negative bacilli to be precise in Enterobacteriaceae family. The members of this family cause many community and hospital acquired infection. It becomes difficult for treatment if the causative agents are carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) . Total 170 clinical CRE isolates were studied for the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern. Cephalosporins and β lactam- β- lactamase inhibitor combination showed resistance ranging from 97.6 % to 99.4 %. Among aminoglycosides tested, 45.3 % of CRE isolates were sensitive to amikacin, compared to 17.1% sensitivity to gentamicin. All the isolates were resistant to ampicillin. For both quinolones tested, 91.7 % of the isolates were resistant. Of the 170 isolates 144 (84.7%) of the strains were sensitive to colistin making it most useful antimicrobial. The antibiogram of clinical isolates particularly that of CRE infections guide the clinicians for appropriate antimicrobial therapy, thereby reducing morbidity and mortality.

Key words: Antimicrobial Resistance, Carbapenem Resistant Enterobacteriaceae, CRE, Carabapenemase
