Comparison of detection methods for heteroresistant vancomycin-intermediate Staphylococcus aureus, with the population analysis profile method as the reference method.

Abstract

Staphylococcus aureus clinical isolates with vancomycin MICs of 2 μg/ml have been associated with vancomycin therapeutic failure and the heteroresistant vancomycin-intermediate S. aureus (hVISA) phenotype. A population analysis profile (PAP) with an area under the curve (AUC) ratio of ≥ 0.9 for the AUC of the clinical isolate versus the AUC for hVISA strain… (More)
