Abstract

MRSA nasal carriage was detected in 15.7% of 204 residents from 6 nursing homes (NHs) in the Osona region (Barcelona, Spain), and the MRSA-ST398 lineage was identified in 15.6% of MRSA-positive residents and in 2.5% of all NH residents evaluated. Most MRSA-ST398 carriers (4 of 5) had direct or...

Abstract

Twenty-two methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains isolated from various infected locations in domestic cats and dogs between June 2008 and September 2014 were analyzed for their genotype, genetic fingerprint, virulence and antibiotic resistance profile. Eighteen strains belonged ...

Abstract

Objectives: To characterize methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) clinical strains from cats and dogs in France, and to compare the clones identified with the distribution of French human MRSA. Methods: Susceptibilities to antimicrobials were assessed by disc diffusion. Resistance and...

Abstract

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) are important causes of infection in companion animals and in humans. Studies evaluating the zoonotic impact of MRSA have revealed that MRSA can be transmitted from humans to companion animals (e.g. horses, dogs, cats, parrots) or vice versa. In...

Abstract

Background: Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an important Gram positive pathogen that has raised concerns due to its increasing prevalence despite pharmaceutical and technological advances. It does not only cause infections in humans but it can also be zoonotic in nature. The...
