Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains with inducible macrolide-lincosamide-streptogramin B (iMLS(B)) resistance phenotype may lead to clinical failure during clindamycin (CLI) therapy. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of MLS(B) phenotypes by using D-test method and genotypes by using multiplex real-time PCR method in MRSA strains. A total of 265 MRSA strains were obtained from clinical samples from hospitalized and outpatients. Of the MRSA isolates, 225… CONTINUE READING
