Oxacillin (methicillin) resistance in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is associated with an increased incidence of resistance to other antibiotics, which has increased since it was first reported in 1969. In 1992 a new phenotype of MRSA arose in France; this was characterized by a heterogeneous expression of resistance to oxacillin and susceptibility to various antibiotics, including gentamicin but also tetracycline, minocycline, lincomycin, pristinamycin, co-trimoxazole… CONTINUE READING
