Özet

Multidrug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae originating from animals 'intestinal tracts may be found on salted and soaked hides/skins. The presence of proteolytic, lipolytic, multidrug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae on hides/skins and the resulting destructive processes results in economic losses to the leather industry and creates health hazards for workers. To minimise this destructive bacterial presence, the bactericidal effect of combined application of direct or alternating electric current and an antibacterial agent against multidrug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae were examined in this study.
