How colonization factors are linked to outbreaks of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus: the roles of SasX and ACME.

Abstract

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is the most frequent cause of hospital-associated morbidity and mortality. One reason why MRSA has remained a serious threat to public health is that new clones of MRSA constantly keep re-emerging. These new clones are better adapted to thrive in the hospital environment or even the community than their… (More)
