Abstract

This study was conducted with the aim of isolating and identifying pathogenic bacterial communities from actively shedding anatomical sites of Macaca fascicularis and M. namestrina in Jambu Rias (JR) and Chemomoi (CM) in Kemasul Forest Reserve, Pahang and to determine the antibiotic susceptibility of these isolates. The findings show that M. fascicularis had higher bacterial density and ten different isolates were identified from these samples. The antibiotic susceptibility tests determined that ciproflaxin and vancomycin as most effective antibiotic towards these isolates.
