In this study, we determined the prevalence of mupirocin and antiseptics resistance in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) at a secondary- and a tertiary-care hospital in Korea. Mupirocin susceptibility test, ileS gene sequencing, and polymerase chain reaction for mupA, qacA/B, and smr gene were performed with 456 nonduplicated MRSA isolates collected from 2 hospitals in Korea. Genetic relatedness was determined by spa typing and multilocus sequence typing (MLST). The rates of… CONTINUE READING
