BACKGROUND The resistance to antimicrobial agents among Staphylococci is an increasing problem. The resistance to macrolide can be mediated by msr A gene coding for efflux mechanism or via erm gene encoding for enzymes that confer inducible or constitutive resistance to macrolide, lincosamide and Type B streptogramin. AIM The present study was aimed to find out the percentage of Staphylococcus aureus having inducible clindamycin resistance (iMLS(B)) in our geographic area using D-test. Also… CONTINUE READING
