Aims: Determining of E.coli serogroups which isolation from UTI patients
Patients and Methods: the study was conducted between September 2019 to April 2020 and they was
collected 40 sample from patient how are diagnosis with UTI during this study .
Results: From the UTI patients individuals, 40 strains were identified in which O serogroups showed
8(30%) and 2 (20%), respectively, of occurrence in those strains. Moreover, the enterohemorrhagic E. coli
(O157 H7) and the enteroaggregative E. coli (O44 H7) were detected in two strains of the UTI-based urine
samples only. For the antibiotic resistance properties of the biofilm positive producers isolated from the UTI
urine samples, multidrug resistance was revealed in 60% of those isolates; however, only 20% of the biofilm
negative producers from the UTI urine samples showed the MDR characteristics. Biofilm was identified in
75% of the UTI urine. For the antibiotic sensitivity test, the results demonstrated that the sensitivity rates to
Imipenem, Amikaci, gentamicin, and tobramycin were 90%, 100%, 65%, and 40%, respectively, in the UTI
Conclusion: The herein study provides thorough data about the Escherichia coli based biofilm,
