Abstract

Staphylococcus (S.) aureus colonizes the skin and mucosa of various mammalian hosts, and up to 30% of the human population is permanently colonized. As a zoonotic pathogen, S. aureus plays an important role in both human and veterinary medicine, affecting a broad range of animals. When the general...

Abstract

Vancomycin is one of the "last-line" classes of antibiotics used in the treatment of life-threatening infections caused by Gram-positive bacteria. Even though vancomycin was discovered in the 1950s, it was widely used after the 1980s for the treatment of infections caused by methicillin-resistant ...

Abstract

Background: A livestock-associated clonal lineage (ST398) of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has been identified causing colonization or infection in farm workers. The aim of the study was to analyze the prevalence of MRSA-ST398 colonization in pigs and in pig farmers in an area...
