ASIARESIST Report Summary

Project ID: ICA4-CT-2001-10028
Funded under: FP5-INCO 2
Country: Thailand

Minimum inhibitory concentration of chloramphenicol against some bacteria isolated from shrimp and fish farms in Thailand

Reference strains for MIC work were
- ASIARESIST Strain C256-V-OM-A-4-O-1,
- Eschericia coli LMG 8223,
- Aeromonas hydrophila LMG 28444,
- Stenotrophomonas maltophilia LGM 11092,
- Acinetobactor junii LGM 10577, and
- Salmonella enteritidis LGM 10395.

The results on MIC show that many resistance strains of Thai bacterial samples that collected from shrimp and fish farms were resisted to a very high concentration of chloramphenicol (> 512 ppm). Therefore the concentrations of chloramphenicol was increased to find the MIC end point of that particular resistance isolates. The results showed that the highest concentration of MIC of chloramphenicol was 2,048 ppm.
