Detection of the intercellular adhesion loci (ica) in clinicalStaphylococcus aureus strains responsible for hospital acquired auricular infection

In clinicalStaphylococcus aureus strains, the presence of theica genes, biofilm formation and susceptibility to antibiotics are considered important factors of virulence. In this study, 35 strains ofS. aureus, isolated from auricular infection, were investigated for slime production using Congo red agar (CRA) method, antibiotic susceptibility, presence… CONTINUE READING
