Most effective antibiotic in bile and stone culture positive cases are Cefepime, Ceftriaxone, Imipenem, Amikacin, Gentamycin and Ciprofloxacin.
It was found that the rate of sensitivity of Acinetobacter against cefoperazone is high following amikacin and meropenem which has been proved by Purva et al., in 2013,16 but this organism was resistant to Ciprofloxacin following Cefotaxime and Gentamycin which is similar to the result of the study conducted by Lagatolla et al.17 In the present study Linezolid was found highly sensitive against S.aureus.

94.6% of the Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates was susceptible to piperacillin followed by 67.6% to Gentamycin and 58.5% to Ciprofloxacin.
Gram-positive bacteria isolates showed a higher level of sensitivity to amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (92.8%) followed by gentamycin (71.4%), but were resistant to tetracycline (71.4%) and nitrofurantoin (64.3%).
Studies of antimicrobial resistance of Salmonella species serogroups recovered from diarrheic calves were recorded in Table (4) as highlighted that Salmonella isolates were sensitive to Enrofloxacin, Penicillin, Spectinomycin and Neomycin, while all were resistant to Gentamycin, Erythromycin and Amoxicillin.
hydrophila isolates were sensitive to chloramphenicol 30 ug (100%), streptomycin 10 ug (90%), tetracycline 30 ug (66.7%), gentamycin 10 ug (60%), norfloxacin 10 ug (55%) and erythromycin 10 ug (33.3%), while, these isolates were resistant to amoxicillin 10 ug (100%), penicillin 10 ug (100%) and novobiocin 30 ug (100%).
Antibiotic sensitivity: Antibiotic sensitivity of all isolates to different antibiotics including ampicillin, gentamycin, kanamycin, tetracycline, ceftriaxone, vibramycin, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin and cepharadin was determined by Kirby-baud method.
AmpicillinSalbactum (10 / 10 ug), Ceftazidime (30 ug), ciprofloxacin (5 ug), meropenum (10 ug), gentamycin (10 ug), Amikacin (30 ug), Pipercillin - tazobactum (100 / 10 ug), Cefipime (30 ug), Cephtriazone (30 ug), Tetracycline (30 ug) and Trimethoprime - sulphamethoxazole (1.25 / 23.75 ug).10
dysgalactiae have high levels of resistance, especially to oxytetracycline, gentamycin and neomycin.
In order to impart anti-microbial effect to the dressing, the gel was incorporated with Gentamycin (GEN).
From the sensitivity study, gentamycin followed by ofloxacin and cefuroxime appear to be first line sensitive antibiotics to the isolates from the preauricular sinus.
