Gastrointestinal carriage of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

Journal of Clinical Microbiology
D Rimland, B Roberson

Abstract

Nasal and rectal cultures were taken from all patients with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus identified on routine cultures obtained because of clinical indications. Of 117 patients studied over a 3-year period, 70 (60%) had rectal colonization and 62 (53%) had nasal colonization. Rectal colonization, probably reflecting gastrointestinal carriage, may be a source of transmission of methicillin-resistant S. aureus in hospitalized patients and may be difficult to eradicate.

CRISPR & Staphylococcus

CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. Staphylococci are associated with life-threatening infections in hospitals, as well as the community. Here is the latest research on how CRISPR-Cas system can be used for treatment of Staphylococcal infections.
