ABSTRACT



        40 nasal samples were collected from apparently
healthy males students at Eguare Secondary School, Ekpoma, whose ages fell
within the ranges of 15-20 years were  selected and screened for Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans using Mannitol Salt
Agar and Sabouraud dextrose agar respectively. A total of 15 (37.5%) samples
were positive of S. aureus while no growth was observed for Candida albicans . The disk diffusion method (Kirby-Bauer) on nutrient agar
was used to assess the sensitivity of isolated S. aureus. The antibiogram typing shows that strain 7777777 was
most sensitive to all the antibiotic used while the most resistant strain was
1173674. The isolates were all sensitive to, Gentamycin, Ciproxin, peflaxin,
Ofloxacin and Ceftriaxone all having a susceptibility rate of 100% while
Zinnacef (6.7%), and Ampicillin (33.3%) showed highest resistant rate.  This study has been able to demonstrate a resolving
power strain susceptibility as well as delineation and there is need for
frequent study of Staphylococcus aureus carriage in educational
institutions to minimize the rate of spread of respiratory tract and skin
infection, so as to maintain a healthy institution.
