Abstract

Importance: Household environmental surfaces may serve as vectors for the acquisition and spread of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) among household members, although few studies have evaluated which objects are important reservoirs of MRSA. Objectives: To determine the prevalence ...

Abstract

Food-borne intoxication, caused by heat-stable enterotoxins produced by Staphylococcus aureus, causes over 240,000 cases of food-borne illness in the United States annually. Other staphylococci commonly associated with animals may also produce these enterotoxins. Foods may be contaminated by...

Abstract

Over the last years, more and more infections with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) have been detected in human and veterinary medicine. Since 2005, the clonal complex 398 (CC398) is described in livestock and also in humans with exposure to colonized animals. The emergence of...
