OBJECTIVES This study evaluated the prevalence, antibiogram and molecular features of CA-MRSA in Awka, Nigeria. METHODS Confirmation of MRSA was done by testing resistance to oxacillin (1µg), cloxacillin (5µg) and cefoxitin (30µg) on sterile Mueller Hinton agar supplemented with 4% sodium chloride. The MRSA strains were subjected to antimicrobial susceptibility testing using Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion method. Minimum inhibitory concentration was determined using agar dilution method… CONTINUE READING
