Bacterial isolates were classified into VRSA
, VISA, and VSSA according to the following MIC ranges VSSA [less than or equal to]2 [micro]g/mL, VISA 4-8 [micro]g/mL and VRSA
MIC [greater than or equal to]16 [micro]g/mL.
In conclusion, the results of this study showed the occurrence of vanA gene-negative VRSA
) and heterogeneous VISA (hVISA) strains.
We therefore aimed to determine the prevalence of drug resistance of VISA and VRSA
among methicillin sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) in rural and urban tertiary care setups.
Finally, our findings point towards the need of establishment of continuous drug surveillance mechanism to detect development of antimicrobial resistance against MRSA and possible emergence of VISA and VRSA
strains in future.
* The report provides a snapshot of the global therapeutic landscape of Vancomycin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA
and VRE toe wound isolates (February 2015) and an MRSA isolate from a nasal swab from the patient (March 2015) were sent to CDC for further characterization.
) strains according to disc diffusion test; one strain was isolated from a 35year old female patient in dermatology ward.
The antimicrobial activities of CT against clinical isolates MRSA 16, MSSA 2, VRSA
2, and reference strains were determined via the broth dilution method .
The Hibs website said: "The club was saddened to note that an altercation took place at the Estadio Municipal VRSA
She says the problem has arisen because of a lack of new drugs so that threats including NDM-1, VRSA
and C.diff are evolving faster than treatment.
