Antimicrobial biopreparation, multidrug resistance of pathogens, antimicrobial inhibition, intra-species diversity



The diversity of multidrug-resistance (MDR) of pathogenic strains to antibiotics, most widely used for treatment of human diseases in the Republics of Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh were examined. It was shown, that difference of resistance of pathogens to antibiotics depends on their isolation sources. It was shown, that bacteriocin containing partially purified preparations, obtained from different strains of Enterococcus faecium and durans species, isolated from various samples of matsun, salted cheese and other acid milk products from milk of different domestic animals from rural households, inhibited the growth of multidrug-resistant bacteria belonging to different taxonomic groups with different efficiency.
