The prevalence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in Hungary has been increasing and is now close to 20% among invasive isolates of S. aureus. In order to understand the evolution of MRSA in Hungary, two collections of isolates were studied: 22 representatives of a collection of 238 MRSA isolates recovered between 1994 and 1998, and a collection of 299 MRSA isolates recovered between 2001 and 2004. The isolates were first characterised by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis… CONTINUE READING
