Bacteriological quality of water and water borne diseases in Bangalore: a longitudinal study.In developing countries diarrhea diseases take a big toll which can be prevented by adequate supply of safe drinking water. Thus a longitudinal study was taken up to determine the morbidity due to water borne diseases and bacteriological quality of water. 150 houses in two different areas, one supplied by bore well and other by tap water was selected by modified cluster sampling. Weekly morbidity details collected. Monthly water samples were assessed for bacteriological quality from main supply, ...201122066282
an outbreak of multidrug resistant typhoid fever in bangalore.six hundred and eighty five blood cultures from children clinically diagnosed as enteric fever yielded 176 salmonella strains showing isolation success rate of 25.7%, s. typhi were 164 (93.2%), s. paratyphi a 5 (2.8%), s. choleraesuis 4 (2.3%) and s. typhimurium 3 (1.7%). antibiogram of 164 isolates of s. typhi showed triple drug resistance (tdr) in 156 strains (95.1%) to chloramphenicol, ampicillin and cotrimoxazole, and sensitivity of 90.2% and 95.1% to norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin respective ...199510829903
