In the last two decades, the emergence and spread of antimicrobial- resistant pathogens, among them Salmonella, has become a serious health hazard worldwide, and pecifically the high incidence of multidrug resistance has been encountered widely in many European countries. This study examines the antimicrobial supsceptibility of Salmonella enterica strains Typhimurium and Enteritidis isolated in Campania and Calabria region (Southern Italy) fromanimal and food of animal origin. The relationship of antibiotic resistance henotype and the presence of some resistance genes has been also investigated. As espected, our results showes that resistance to ampicillin, chloramphenicol, streptomycin, sulphonamides and tetracycline is common, although resistance to other antibiotics (i.e.:nalidixic acid) and other resistance patterns occur. The genetic resistant patterns have been partially described for this food-borne pathogen but efforts are needed to realize the complete characterization of antimicrobial resistance genes. © Spriger Science+Business Media B.V. 2010.
