monitoring of selected bacteria and fungi in sand and sea water along the tel aviv coast.monitoring sand and sea water of the mediterranean tel aviv beaches during 1989-1991 for bacterial quality showed varying data and no correlation between standard bacteria parameters (sbp) and potential pathogenic bacteria (ppb). an exceptional feature was observed in 1989 when faecal coliforms including escherichia coli and faecal streptococcus were less in sand than in sea water. these results may be attributed to the low turbulent activity of the sea in 1989, particularly in summer, compared ...19948159125
plasmid profiles and antimicrobial susceptibility of campylobacter jejuni isolated from israeli children with diarrhea.thirty campylobacter jejuni (c. jejuni) strains isolated from stools of israeli children with enteritis were tested for sensitivity to eight antimicrobial agents (mic) and the presence of plasmids. it was found that all the isolates were sensitive to ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, furazolidone and erythromycin. of the 30 strains tested, 21 (70%) were found to be tetracycline-resistant, a relatively high resistance rate as compared with data from other countries and previous reports from israel. plasm ...19938219507
