Early agr activation correlates with vancomycin treatment failure in multi-clonotype MRSA endovascular infections.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Persistent MRSA infections are especially relevant to endovascular infections and correlate with suboptimal outcomes. However, the virulence signatures of Staphylococcus aureus that drive such persistence outcomes are not well defined. In the current study, we investigated correlations between accessory gene regulator (agr) activation and the… (More)
