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.

The emergence of community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) resulted in the recommended use of clindamycin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) for suspected S. ...
Nosocomial infections arising from opportunistic pathogens, such as Staphylococcus aureus, are growing unabated, compounded by the rapid emergence of antimicrobial resistance. Herein, we demonstrate a...
Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) remains an important cause of healthcare-associated infections. Here, we describe the development of methicillin-resistant isolates among nosocomial ...
The spread of multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a public health concern. The inducible macrolide-lincosamide-streptogrammin B (iMLSB ) phenotype (or inducible clindamycin resistance) is ass...
Few studies, based on a limited number of patients using non-uniform therapeutic protocols, have analyzed Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) eradication.
This is an open-label, dose-escalation pilot study with a total of 30 participants with 10 per dosage group. The aim of the pilot study is to explore the preliminary safety of an experimen...
Staphylococcus aureus nasal carriage is a major risk factor of infection with this bacterium. To our best knowledge, Staphylococcus aureus colonization of the posterior nasal cavity is sti...
The main objective of this study and to know the incidence of healthy carriers of Staphylococcus aureus resistant méti- patients supported for fracture of the proximal femur . This...
The purpose of this investigation is to study the relationships between antimicrobial stewardship program efforts, antimicrobial drug use, and infection control efforts to the incidence r...
The goal of this study is to further the investigators' understanding of community acquired methicillin-resistant Staph Aureus (CA-MRSA) and treatment of it by developing real-world sustai...
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 188.8.131.52.
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.
Health care (or healthcare) is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in humans. Health care is delivered by practitioners in medicine, chiropractic, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, a...
