In vitro biofilm formation and bactericidal activities of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus clones prevalent in Korea.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to quantify the biofilm formations of various methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) clones (ST1, ST5, ST72, ST89, ST239, and ST254) and to evaluate the in vitro activities of antibiotics. Of 86 MRSA isolates tested, 44 isolates (51.2 %) formed biofilms, including 8 strong biofilm producers (7 isolates of ST72 and 1… (More)
