Antibiotic resistance has been monitored in 293 strains of S. typhimurium and 260 strains of S. enteritidis isolated from poultry in Czech Republic in the years 1991 and 1992. Ninety per cent of all salmonella isolations examined by disc diffusion method (Bauer et al., 1966) were sensitive to all 8 antimicrobials (chloramphenicol, neomycin, tetracycline, streptomycin, colistin, ampicillin, kanamycin, sulfisoxasol) used for testing. The strains of S. typhimurium were more resistant than S. enteritidis strains, as seen from the percentage of resistant strains, 17.4% and 1.2% respectively. Thirty-two (62.7%) out of 51 resistant strains were multiresistant. The percentage of resistance in S. typhimurium strains was as follows: sulfisoxazol (12.3%), streptomycin (11.3%), tetracycline (4.4%) and chloramphenicol (1.7%)
