Staphylococcus aureus is an important nosocomial and community-acquired pathogen. Hospital infections are frequently complicated by the ability of bacteria to form biofilms on different surfaces. The(More)
A novel variant of the ST1-SCCmecIV methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) lineage, mostly associated with nosocomial bloodstream infections (BSI), has emerged in Rio de Janeiro.(More)
Biofilm is considered an important virulence factor in nosocomial infections. Herein, we report the complete genome sequence of a variant of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, strain(More)
Staphylococcus aureus biofilms represent a unique micro-environment that directly contribute to the bacterial fitness within hospital settings. The accumulation of this structure on implanted medical(More)
The aim of the present paper was to compare different methods for detecting methicillin resistance in Staphylococcus aureus. Among the isolates analyzed, 52 belonged to MRSA international lineages(More)
Biofilm formation is considered an important virulence factor in implanted device-associated infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Recent studies demonstrated that(More)
