Nasal carriage of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in university students.

Abstract

In a study of university students, the percentage nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus was 40.8% (102/250). Of the isolates, MIC(50) of methicillin was 0.5 µg/mL and MIC(90) was 1 µg/mL. Six (5.8%) isolates were methicillin-resistant and carried the mecA gene. These results suggest that community-associated methicillin-resistant S. aureus may be… (More)
