Staphylococcus aureus is one of the most important etiological agents responsible for healthcare-associated infections and is capable of producing many virulence factors including biofilm. The aim of the present study was to analyze the correlation between the presence of the icaD and icaA genes and the ability to produce biofilm in vitro in 302 methicillin-resistant (MRSA) and 268 methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) strains isolated in the Provincial Hospital in Gdansk. Presence of the icaD… CONTINUE READING
