Abstract

In human beings and animals, staphylococci constitute part of the normal microbial population. Staphylococcus aureus could be classified as an opportunistic pathogen because the bacteria are noted in clinically healthy individuals, but when the immune system becomes compromised, they can also cause ...

Abstract

This study aimed to determine the frequency and molecular epidemiology of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from Australian animals and whether animal-derived MRSA was similar to that from Australian veterinarians. A total of 1,080 clinical coagulase positive Staphylococcus...

Abstract

Our aim was to demonstrate that biofilm formation in a clinical strain of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) can be enhanced by environment exposure in an endotracheal tube (ETT) and to determine how it is affected by systemic treatment and atmospheric conditions. Second, we aimed...

Abstract

Background: Multidrug-resistant microorganisms (MDRO) occur both in animals and humans in Germany. For providing guidance for the prevention of MDRO in households and outside healthcare facilities and the prevention of zoonotic transmission, it is essential to describe the epidemiology of major...

Abstract

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) remains one of the most virulent human pathogens and has also recently been recognized as such in the veterinary settings. Companion animals, including dogs, cats, horses, small exotic animals, wildlife animals, and livestock, may constitute a...

Abstract

Objective: To understand the triggers that may impact respiratory health in cystic fibrosis (CF), including the effects of pets, because environmental factors contribute to one-half of the variation in lung function in patients with CF. Study design: A total of 703 subjects with CF were recruited...

Abstract

Our objective was to determine the antibiotic susceptibility profiles of Staphylococcus aureus isolates recovered from 110 households of children with community-onset methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) infections. Cultures were obtained from household members, household objects, and dogs and ...

Abstract

This study sought the presence of these mutations in the whole genome sequence data of 458 MRSA isolates cultured from humans (n=397) or animals (n=61). Isolates from humans were predominantly drawn from the east of England between 1985 and 1987 (n=180) or between 2006 and 2013 (n=191), with the...
