Abstract

Livestock associated methicillin resistant S. aureus (LA-MRSA) are lineages adapted to livestock species. LA-MRSA can be transmitted to humans and public health concerns exist because livestock may be the largest MRSA reservoir outside of hospital settings. Although the predominant European (ST398) ...

Abstract

The detection of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and other emerging strains in meat-producing animals and retail meat has increased the risk of contamination of food. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and characterize S. aureus strains isolated from the pork...

Abstract

Whereas the emergence of livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) clonal complex 398 (CC398) in animal husbandry and its transmission to humans are well documented, less is known about factors driving the epidemic spread of this zoonotic lineage within the human...
