Pediatric bacteremia due to Staphylococcus warneri: microbiological, epidemiological, and clinical features.

Journal of Clinical Microbiology
J P ButteryG Hogg

Abstract

Between 1991 and 1995, an apparent high rate of Staphylococcus warneri bacteremias at the Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, raised the possibility of a virulent nosocomial strain. In a retrospective review of 30 S. warneri bacteremias in children, organisms were viable and verified in 22 episodes, 12 representing significant bacteremias. Of these 12 episodes, 2 pairs shared chromosomal DNA pulsed-field gel electrophoresis patterns in unconnected patients, dispelling concerns about a single virulent strain.

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.
