BACKGROUND Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections have changed since certain non-multiresistant MRSA lineages have emerged in hospitals. In this study, 99 MRSA isolates, 77(More)
The presence of the ileS-2 gene, responsible for mupirocin resistance, in clinical isolates of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus was determined by multiplex polymerase chain reaction. Three(More)
The population analysis profile (PAP) method as well as analysis of autolytic activity and cellular ultrastructure by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) were used to characterise Staphylococcus(More)
Change in epidemiology of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) was observed because of the emergence of infections by non-multiresistant MRSA (nMRSA) in our hospital in Rio de Janeiro,(More)
Meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates were classified into three mupirocin susceptibility groups by the disc diffusion method using 5 and 200 microg mupirocin discs. The zone diameter(More)
The high prevalence of Enterococcus faecalis in root canal treated teeth with post-treatment disease, as evidenced by both molecular and traditional culturing methods, suggests that this species may(More)
