Emergence of Delafloxacin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus in Brooklyn, NY.

08:00 EDT 15th August 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Emergence of Delafloxacin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus in Brooklyn, NY."

Delafloxacin is an option for infections due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. In 2017, 22% of isolates from seven hospitals in Brooklyn, NY were nonsusceptible to delafloxacin. Isolates belonging to ST105, a strain associated with healthcare-related infections, predominated. Resistance was also found in ST8, a strain (USA300) associated with community-associated infections.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A strain of Staphylococcus aureus that is non-susceptible to the action of METHICILLIN. The mechanism of resistance usually involves modification of normal or the presence of acquired PENICILLIN BINDING PROTEINS.

A species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, but containing different esterases. The subspecies Staphylococcus hominis novobiosepticus is highly virulent and novobiocin resistant.

A 25-kDa peptidase produced by Staphylococcus simulans which cleaves a glycine-glcyine bond unique to an inter-peptide cross-bridge of the STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS cell wall. EC 3.4.24.75.

Pneumonia caused by infections with bacteria of the genus STAPHYLOCOCCUS, usually with STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS.

A COAGULASE-negative species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS found on the skin and MUCOUS MEMBRANE of warm-blooded animals. Similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS EPIDERMIDIS and STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, it is a nosocomial pathogen in NICU settings. Subspecies include generally antibiotic susceptible and BIOFILM negative capitis and antibiotic resistant and biofilm positive urealyticus isolates.
