Recent reports of strains of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolated from children in the community have led to speculation that the epidemiology of S. aureus is changing (1-3). Epidemiologic features of the cases described in these reports show a major departure from features typically associated with MRSA colonization or infection Abstract Staphylococcus aureus can cause severe life‐threatening illnesses such as sepsis and endocarditis. Although S. aureus has been isolated from marine water and intertidal beach sand, only a few studies have been conducted to assess prevalence of S. aureus at freshwater recreational beaches

Staphylococcus aureus, phage type 29/52/80, caused an outbreak of infections in Michigan over a period of two years and continues to be the most prevalent type seen. Of 3,752 isolates typed in 1980-81, 25 per cent were this phage type, which was strongly associated with methicillin resistance Staphylococcus aureus continually threaten the safety of meat products, especially the multidrug-resistant (MDR) strains.

Introduction. Staphylococcus aureus is a major cause of numerous infections in both communities and healthcare facilities, and is increasingly showing resistance to multiple antimicrobial agents [1, 2].The development of resistance to multiple drugs, including glycopeptides, has caused substantial difficulty in the management of staphylococcal infections, and has been long been a healthcare. New epidemiology of Staphylococcus aureus infection Africa. identified several distinctive traits of S. aureus epidemiology, both in developed urban populations and in remote rural communities. By far the most striking feature of this epidemiology is the very high prevalence, ranging from 17% to 74%, of the genes encoding the potent leukotoxin. Research on African Staphylococcus aureus has been largely neglected in the past, despite the cultural and geographical diversity in Africa, which has a significant impact on the epidemiology of this pathogen. The polarity between developed urban societies and remote rural populations (e.g. Pygmies), combined with close contact with animals (e.g. livestock and domestic animals, and wildlife.

Staphylococcus aureus has maintained its clinical relevance as a major cause of hospital and community acquired infections globally with a high burden of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Though reported, the burden of infection, antimicrobial resistance and molecular epidemiology of S. aureus are not well defined in Kenya. This descriptive review evaluated reported data on the detection and. Introduction. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is one of the most important bacterial pathogens worldwide, causing a number of community-acquired and health care-associated infections, including septicemia, skin and soft tissue infections, osteomyelitis, and endocarditis [].The mean prevalence of MRSA in Iran is between 57.2 and 93.3 percent [] Over a 2-year period (2003 to 2005) patients with community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) and community-acquired methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MSSA) infections were prospectively identified. Patients infected with CA-MRSA (n = 102 patients) and CA-MSSA (n = 102 patients) had median ages of 46 and 53 years, respectively; the most common.

Prevalence and Molecular Epidemiology of Staphylococcus

Infections caused by oxacillin (methicillin)—resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) are a problem in health care institutions in the United States [1, 2] and worldwide, especially for intensive care unit (ICU) patients [].Since the late 1990s, MRSA have been increasingly recognized as a cause of infections among otherwise healthy people outside of health care settings [] INTRODUCTION. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bloodstream infection (BSI) is a cause of concern in hospitals because of its high incidence rate and the associated undesirable outcomes. An overall mortality rate between 20% and 30% is observed in the majority of reports. 3,8,31 Although the costs related to MRSA-BSI in terms of mortality and sanitary expenditure are known, 46.

Although the epidemiology of Staphylococcus aureus bloodstream infection (BSI) has been changing, international comparisons are lacking. We sought to determine the incidence of S. aureus BSI and assess trends over time and by region. Population-based surveillance was conducted nationally in Finland and regionally in Canberra, Australia, western Sweden, and three areas in each of Canada and. Evolving Epidemiology of Staphylococcus aureus Bacteremia - Volume 36 Issue 1 Staphylococcus aureus is a bacterium commonly found on the skin (15%), in the nostrils (27%), and in the pharynx (10-20%) of healthy adults [1,2,3], but it is also the cause of a number of diseases, whose severity ranges from common community-associated skin infections to fatal bacteraemia [3,4,5]. S. aureus is a leading cause of surgical, device-related, and pleuropulmonary infections.

  2. IMPORTANCE The rise in prevalence of community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) is of public health concern. In Argentina, several studies documented a shift in the epidemiology of CA-MRSA since 2009, with clonal complex 30 (CC30) and, in particular, sequence type 30 MRSA SCCmec type IV (ST30-MRSA-IV) replacing other clones both in communities and in hospitals.
  3. Over time, staph bacteria have become difficult to treat with antibiotics related to penicillin (e.g., methicillin, amoxicillin). These resistant forms of staph are called methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. The illnesses that MRSA causes are similar to those caused by other staph; the difference is in how they are treated
  4. Staphylococcus aureus is an opportunistic pathogen that colonizes asymptomatically the skin and nares of approximately 1 in 3 people worldwide [1, 2]. S. aureus is found in hospital settings, and with the emergence of antibiotic resistance, can cause life threatening infections. Recent studies have suggested that, in the United States, over 80,000 invasive infections and 11,000 yearly deaths.
  5. Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) that are resistant to methicillin. S. aureus is common and frequently present in or on human skin. It also colonizes areas in or on the body, meaning that it can be detected, but may not be causing an acute infection. Up to 30 percent of people are colonized with S. aureus
  6. Staphylococcus aureus is a common cause of skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs), endovascular infections, pneumonia, septic arthritis, endocarditis, osteomyelitis, foreign-body infections, and sepsis ().In the United States, epidemic infection with community-associated (CA) methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is occurring, with many reports of MRSA infections among persons.
