There is general opinion that Staphylococcus aureus strains isolated in hospitals are more frequently resistant to antibiotics than community strains, however, the increasing resemblance between hospital and community strains has been recently reported. The aim of the study was to compare the antibiotic resistance and phage-type pattern of S. aureus strains(More)
2545 strains of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from 24 Polish laboratories in the years 1994-95 were investigated. Phage typing was performed according to the method of Blair and Williams using the present basic set of typing phages and additional phages 88, 89 and 187. The phages were employed in concentrations of RTD and 100 x RTD. The predominance of(More)
