Regarding typing of chromosome cassette mec (SCCmec), a high percent of isolates classified as CA-MRSA and HA-MRSA
harbored SCCmec type IVc (n = 73, 70.
, these strains usually cause more infection in younger people .
0% of the patients were found to be infected with HA-MRSA
Out of 51 MRSA cases, 7(14%) were CA-MRSA and 44(86%) were HA-MRSA
aureus chromosome the SCCmec typing system has become an important technique for distinguishing between HA-MRSA
In clinical settings it is important to differentiate between HA-MRSA
and CAMRSA infections to help determine the most effective treatment and to reduce the rate of infections in hospitals and the community.
CA-MRSA and HA-MRSA
have different in vitro sensitivities to antimicrobials, different virulence factors, and different epidemiologic profiles.
As cepas CA-MRSA sao sensiveis a uma variedade importante de antibioticos nao [beta]-lactamicos, enquanto os HA-MRSA
sao tipicamente resistentes a multiplos antibioticos.
Additionally, as MRSA strains become progressively common in a variety of settings, the use of restrictive terms like HA-MRSA
and CA-MRSA will become less meaningful as spread between all populations occur.
was a CMRSA-2 (PVL-) strain while the CA MRSA strain was a CMRSA-7 (PVL+) strain.
FERREIRA, GONCALVES e ASSIS, 1985 apud GELATTI et al, 2009) Epidemiologicamente, cepas MRSA oriundas de hospitais sao denominadas HA-MRSA
(MRSA oriundos de hospital).
The presence of both HA-MRSA
and CA-MRSA continue to rise at alarming rates.
