Abstract

and are waterborne bacteria that can survive and grow in various water sources, and that are emerging pathogens in hospital settings. Not much is known about the antibiotic resistance of these bacteria. Previous reports of antimicrobial susceptibility have been largely limited to a few clinical strains with no accounting for genotypic or phenotypic diversity or that these species could vary from the set breakpoints. Etests and disc diffusion tests were carried out to compare the antimicrobial susceptibilities to 12 different antibiotics of 68 different isolates of (53) and (15) from varying environments, which have previously been well characterized both phenotypically and genetically. The majority of the and isolates showed susceptibility to most of the antibiotics tested in this study. The most effective were found to be the quinolones and sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim. Antibiotic susceptibility was also found not to vary between environmental niches for and isolates.
