OBJECTIVE Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolates from patients with community-associated infection have been described as strains genetically distinct from the strains isolated from patients with healthcare-associated infection. This study examines the hypothesis that community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA) strains now cause serious infections in hospitalized patients. METHODS Thirty-seven clinical MRSA isolates were randomly selected from blood isolates obtained from July… CONTINUE READING
