To determine the prevalence rates of oxacillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (ORSA) at a new university hospital since its opening, the results of disk diffusion tests on all clinical isolates, recovered between 1990 and 1998 at the National Cheng Kung University Hospital, were reviewed. In order, to investigate the mechanisms of oxacillin resistance among strains of S. aureus in Taiwan, MICs were determined by an agar dilution method, and polymerase chain reaction and colony hybridization… CONTINUE READING
