Knowledge, Attitude and Practice Regarding Staphylococcus pettenkoferi

TLDR
Information is gathered that S. pettenkoferi is a human commensal, opportunistic bacterium and may be isolated from the environment and animals and reveals the difficulties and rules for interpreting the results of microbiological tests, when S. petschoferi has been identified in the blood sample.

The Surge of Hypervirulent ST398 MRSA Lineage With Higher Biofilm-Forming Ability Is a Critical Threat to Clinics

TLDR
Drug resistance and virulence gene analysis based on the WGS data demonstrated that ST398 HO-MRSA main clade exhibited a similar pattern in both parts, and carried a conserved variant of prophage 3 to guarantee virulence and a short SCCmec type V element of class D to maintain considerable lower methicillin resistance.

Detection and phylogeny of Staphylococcus aureus sequence type 398 in Taiwan

TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of genome sequences indicated that all 12 local ST398 MRSA strains cluster together, human-adapted and phylogenetically related to a human MRSA strain identified in China in 2002.

Characterization of Staphylococcus aureus from Raw Meat Samples in Tunisia: Detection of Clonal Lineage ST398 from the African Continent

TLDR
The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency of S. aureus and methicillin-resistant MRSA isolates in raw meat samples destined for food consumption in Tunisia, and to characterize the recovered isolates.

Clinical Features and Genotyping Analysis of Community-Acquired Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Infections in Taiwanese Children

TLDR
In Taiwan, MRSA was prevalent among pathogens of CA infections in children, and these CA isolates were multiresistant and genetically associated with HA isolates, and a glycopeptide-containing regimen should be considered for initial empirical therapy in the case of serious infection.

Identification of livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates in Korea and molecular comparison between isolates from animal carcasses and slaughterhouse workers.

TLDR
This study undertaken to screen methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in animal carcasses and slaughterhouse workers and characterize MRSA isolates identified during 2010-2012 in Korea finds the first report of tet(S) gene in MRSA isolate and first detection of a unique (ST692) type of MRSA in occupational workers.

TLDR
CA MRSA strains have been introduced into hospitals by the 15%-23% of patients who require hospitalization for management of their infections and most likely by other colonized patients who requiring hospital admission for other purposes.

Comparative molecular analysis of community-associated and healthcare-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates from children in northern Taiwan.

TLDR
It was concluded that the molecular characteristics of clinical MRSA isolates from children differed significantly between the CA and the HA isolates in northern Taiwan, however, the CA clone of ST59 was also identified in a substantial proportion ofHA isolates.

Prevalence and Characteristics of Staphylococcus aureus in Connecticut Swine and Swine Farmers

TLDR
MRSA including LA strains (LA‐MRSA) can be found on small farms with different husbandry practices from CAFOs, suggesting that preventive measures for zoonotic MRSA infection should address a range of animal production.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in people living and working in pig farms

TLDR
Working in pig stables with MRSA-positive pigs poses a high risk for acquiring MRSA, increasingly so when contact with live pigs is more intensive or long lasting.

Emergence of Livestock-Associated Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Bloodstream Infections in Denmark

TLDR
Whole-genome sequencing supported that Danish pigs are the most likely source of human LA-MRSA CC398 infections in Denmark during 2010-2015.

Molecular Evidence for Spread of Two Major Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Clones with a Unique Geographic Distribution in Chinese Hospitals

TLDR
Two major epidemic MRSA clones are documented, ST239-MRSA-SCCmec type III and ST5- MRSA- SCCmemec type II, with unique geographic distributions across China.
