Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA); it is a bacterial infection that is resistant to antibiotics, it is also known as multidrug resistant (because it resists from many drugs that are used against it).
Epidemiology of MRSA MRSA is an epidemiological problem, which can have its source in the community and health care settings, the epidemiology, of MRSA in relation to agent, host, environment, web of causation and its natural history.
Staphylococcus aureusis an opportunistic pathogen often carried asymptomatically on the human body. Methicillin-resistant S. aureus(MRSA) strains have acquired a gene that makes them resistant to nearly all beta-lactam antibiotics. Resistance to other antibiotics is also common, especially in hospital-associated MRSA.Over the past two decades, vancomycin has been considered the antibiotic of choice for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections. Indeed, multidrug-resistant clones of MRSA for.Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that commonly colonises human skin and mucosa without causing any problems.It can also cause disease, particularly if there is an opportunity for.
In the last number of years, the Irish Health Service has come under major criticism. The emergence of Hospital Acquired Infections has sent the Health sector in to a state of disarray. The most common of these infections is Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) which has now become a term of everyday language.Read More
The symptoms of MRSA depend on where you're infected. Most often, it causes mild infections on the skin, like sores, boils, or abscesses.But it can also cause more serious skin infections or.Read More

Abstract (Summary) The bacterium Staphylococcus aureus has been an important human ailment for centuries, and with the overuse of antibiotics, methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has emerged as a deadly, costly pathogen worldwide. Healthy carriers can become sick or can spread MRSA without symptoms.Read More
