Abstract

The aim of this study is to figure out the profile of antibiotic resistance in E. coli, sourced from raw milk, obtained from five districts in East Java Province, Indonesia. A total of 250 samples were tested using the Kirby-Bauer Test method. The result revealed that the highest percentage of antibiotic resistance was Tetracycline (17.05%), followed by Streptomycin (14.2%), Trimethoprim (9.66%), Chloramphenicol (7.95%) and Aztreonam (1.7%). A total of 16 E. coli isolates (9.1%) were detected as MDR, and 3 E. coli isolates (1.7%) were suspected as presumptive ESBL. Thus, threat of multidrug resistance E. coli possibly sourced from the milk.
