ABSTRACT

Resistance to various pollutants, including antibiotics, is widespread among environmental bacteria, including Aeromonas spp. The aim of the study was to investigate the antibiotic resistance pattern of Aeromonas caviae strains isolated from raw and treated wastewater taken from a municipal wastewater treatment plant.
The results from this study revealed high level of multidrug resistance among the tested isolates. Moreover, the strains showing greater resistance were found in raw wastewater (influent of wastewater treatment plants). The results indicate the impact of the applied wastewater treatment technology on the occurrence of resistance in Aeromonas caviae. There is a need for further study on the antibiotic resistance genes and genetic relatedness of these isolates.
