Two different but complementary approaches are 1) to monitor the presence of specifically identified pathogens that have emerged
as human pathogens and 2) to investigate in a given wildlife species the presence of known or unknown infectious agents.
To the Editor: Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an established nosocomial pathogen worldwide but more recently has emerged as a highly virulent organism in the community, particularly in the United States (1-3).
The molecular epidemiology of healthcare-related MRSA in Colombia has changed during the past 3 years (10), but no reports of CAMRSA had emerged. We believe these to be the first reports of CA-MRSA in Colombia with similar characteristics to those reported elsewhere.
Emerging infectious diseases include novel pathogens that have newly emerged
, such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), as well as pathogens that could potentially be used as biologic weapons.
