Molecular Characterization of Clinical Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Isolates in South Africa

Molecular Characterization of Clinical Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Isolates in... Eighty-two percent of 320 clinical methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolates from various infection sites collected throughout South Africa were separated into five major globally prevalent clusters by SmaI pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, spa , and SCC mec typing. Only one Panton-Valentine leukocidin-positive isolate was detected. This is the first detailed MRSA epidemiology study for the whole country. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Clinical Microbiology American Society For Microbiology
