Meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) associated with the clonal complex (CC) 398 has emerged among livestock and humans exposed to these animals. MRSA CC398 has so far contributed relatively little to spread of MRSA and the burden of disease in the healthcare setting. This study aimed to assess whether demographic and clinical differences in patients colonized with MRSA CC398 and those carrying other MRSA clones contribute to the observed differences in transmission and infection… CONTINUE READING
