AbstractIt is increasingly critical to test antibiotics on local bacterial strains, due to the continuously growing resistance of microflora to extensively administered antibacterial medications. For this study, we examined the development of antimicrobial resistance of Salmonellae collected in Uzbekistan through 1998 versus those collected in 2008. Tests on local collections (through 1998) and newly cultivated (after 2008) strains of the pathogens circulating in the Republic of Uzbekistan demonstrated that the microbial population of Salmonellae underwent changes resulting in the occurrence of resistant strains. There are more moderately resistant and resistant strains among the newly cultivated strains as compared to the ones isolated through 1998.
