Abstract

Salmonella typhi is one of the most resistant organisms with multi-drug resistant strains reported from many countries. Initially, individual plasmids were known to code for resistance,but since 1988 a single plasmid has been identified to code for multidrug resistance. It has been found that in certain areas, S. typhi has lost this acquired resistance.
