Summary of "Danish experience of meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus eradication with emphasis on nose-throat colonization and supplementary systemic antibiotic treatment."

The study-aim was to evaluate the Danish national Board of Health's guidance for treating MRSA carriage focusing on MRSA nose-throat carriage and use of supplementary systemic antibiotics. We analyze results of MRSA eradication treatment of 358 patients, focusing on those with nose (n=58) or throat (n=183) MRSA colonization. We found that the Danish guidance for treating MRSA have greater success for patients with nose colonization (66%) compared to throat colonization (41%), even though the cumulative eradication rates were equal after additional three treatment cycles (71% versus 73%). We find no positive effect of supplementing the colonization treatment with systemic antibiotics.

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

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.
