The Causes and Interpretation of Low-level Resistance in Staphylococcus Aureus

2014-08-27 03:13:33 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The hypothesis of this investigation is that rate of isolation of resistant nosocomial pathogens can be explained by a combination of measures that include, among other things, antimicrobial drug use, infection control efforts, patient mix and antimicrobial stewardship efforts. The short term goal of this investigation is to improve our understanding of the relationships between antimicrobial stewardship program efforts (and actual antimicrobial drug use), and infection control efforts to the incidence rates of MSSA, MRSA, h-VISA and SA-MICcreep. The long term goal of this investigation is to design interventions that will improve antimicrobial drug use and decrease cross-transmission of resistant bacteria, resulting in a decrease in the rates of infection caused resistant hospital organisms.

Geographic distribution of livestock-associated Staphylococcus aureus in the United States.

Sampling for livestock-associated Staphylococcus aureus (LA-SA) in the United States is haphazard. The diversity of LA-S. aureus in the U.S. appears to be greater than in other countries. We review th...

Prevalence and antibiotyping of Staphylococcus aureus and methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in domestic animals in India.

Domestic animals can serve as reservoirs for drug resistant S. aureus and may lead to the emergence of multidrug resistant human S. aureus.

Staphylococcus aureus from atopic dermatitis skin accumulates in the lysosomes of keratinocytes with induction of IL-1α secretion via TLR9.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is frequently detected in the skin of patients with atopic dermatitis (AD), and involved in the flare of AD. There are some evidence specific strains of S. aureus aff...

Study of Staphylococcus aureus N315 Pathogenic Genes by Text Mining and Enrichment Analysis of Pathways and Operons.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a versatile pathogen found in many environments and can cause nosocomial infections in the community and hospitals. S. aureus infection is an increasingly serious ...

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

Potentially pathogenic bacteria found in nasal membranes, skin, hair follicles, and perineum of warm-blooded animals. They may cause a wide range of infections and intoxications.
