Poultry consumption in Côte d'Ivoire is booming, however it is the main reservoir of antibiotic resistant strains of Salmonella. The objective of this work is to assess the level of resistance to Salmonella antibiotics isolated from chickens. Salmonella strains (104) isolated from 51 batches of raw chicken gedisers were subjected to phenotypic and molecular characterization. Derby (18.9%), Budapest (17%), Essen and Kentucky (11.3%) represent the predominant serotypes. The antibiogram carried out showed resistance: high to cotrimoxazole (93.37%) and to tetracycline (73.08%); relatively moderate for ticarcillin (46.15%) and ciprofloxacin (28.85%) and lower for cefotaxime (0.96%). The resistance genes tet (A), bla CTX-M-1, bla CTX-Mconsensus, sul 1, qnr (A, B and S), sought by molecular tests (PCR and sequencing) revealed the presence of genes tet (A) (40%), sul 1 (40%), bla CTX-M-1 (65%) and the presumption of a diversity of bla genes including: CTX-M-2, -5, -44, -59, -92, -97, OXY and NDM-1. Therefore, monitoring the use of antibiotics in poultry farming remains an essential precaution to guarantee the safety of food intended for human consumption.
