Between January 1997 and December 1999, bloodstream isolates from 15,439 patients infected with Staphylococcus aureus and 6350 patients infected with coagulase-negative Staphylococcus species (CoNS) were referred by SENTRY-participating hospitals in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, and the Western Pacific region. S. aureus was found to be the most prevalent cause of bloodstream infection, skin and soft-tissue infection, and pneumonia in almost all geographic areas. A notable… 

High Prevalence of Oxacillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Isolates from Hospitalized Patients in Asia-Pacific and South Africa: Results from SENTRY Antimicrobial Surveillance Program, 1998-1999

Distinct resistance patterns predominated at various sites within the APAC region, suggesting the local evolution of resistant clones, and MORSA strains are a very common cause of infection in hospitalized patients in the region.

Continued Emergence of USA300 Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus in the United States: Results from a Nationwide Surveillance Study

A single strain type (USA300/t008/IV) predominates in all regions and infection sites and is now more common than USA 100 as a cause of MRSA BSI and nosocomial infections.

Prevalence and antimicrobial susceptibilities of bacteria isolated from blood cultures of hospitalized patients in the United States in 2002

Ongoing surveillance for antimicrobial susceptibility remains essential, and will enhance efforts to identify resistance and attempt to limit its spread.

Prevalence And Antibiotic Resistance Pattern Of Methicillin-Resistance Staphylococcus Aureus Among In-Patients At A Tertiary Health Facility In Ido-Ekiti , Nigeria

There is high rate of MRSA and multidrug-resistant strains, there is need for strict antibiotic policy, continuous monitoring of antibiotic susceptibility pattern of all S.aureus and observation of infection control measures to curtail the evolution of these resistant strains.

Prevalence and antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in CMS-teaching hospital: a preliminary report

To reduce the prevalence of MRSA, regular surveillance of hospital acquired infection and isolation is the need of the hour.

Prevalence And Antibiotic Resistance Pattern Of Methicillin-Resistance Staphylococcus Aureus Among In-Patients At A Tertiary Health Facility In Ido-Ekiti, Nigeria

There is high rate of MRSA and multidrug-resistant strains, there is need for strict antibiotic policy, continuous monitoring of antibiotic susceptibility pattern of all S.aureus and observation of infection control measures to curtail the evolution of these resistant strains.

Epidemiology and Typing of Staphylococcus aureus Strains Isolated from Bloodstream Infections

Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) analysis of 109 MRSA strains and 15EMSSA strains demonstrated clonal diffusion of the three major French MRSA clones and revealed considerable genetic heterogeneity among EMSSA strains, suggesting that each MRSA lineage displays particular virulence features.

Molecular epidemiology of clinical and carrier strains of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in the hospital settings of north India

It was shown that the major reservoir of methicillin resistant staphylococci in hospitals are colonized/infected inpatients and colonized hospital workers, with carriers at risk for developing endogenous infection or transmitting infection to health care workers and patients.

Clinical Characteristics of Invasive Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus at General Hospital in the Central Region of Japan from July 2014 to June 2015

It was revealed that erythromycin and gentamicin were more antimicrobial effective in invasive disease than in noninvasive disease significantly, and continuous antimicrobial surveys are need for guiding policy on the adequate use of antibiotics.

Bacterial Pathogens Isolated from Patients with Bloodstream Infection: Frequencies of Occurrence and Antimicrobial Susceptibility Patterns from the SENTRY Antimicrobial Surveillance Program (United States and Canada, 1997)

Overall, U.S. isolates were considerably more resistant than those from Canada, and distinct differences were noted in the antimicrobial susceptibilities of several pathogens.

Genetic relatedness of multidrug-resistant, methicillin (oxacillin)-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bloodstream isolates from SENTRY Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance Centers worldwide, 1998.

Although many MDR-MRSA strains group geographically, a few closely related epidemic strains have wide regional and even global range and there is great geographic variation in rates of methicillin- and multidrug-resistance among S. aureus bloodstream isolates worldwide.

Surveillance of antibiotic resistance in Taiwan, 1998.

For the first national surveillance of antibiotic resistance in Taiwan, 3,211 isolates from 22 hospitals were collected in 1998 and identified subpopulations with smaller diameters in the case of vancomycin against S. aureus, ciprofloxacin against E. coli, and ciprafloxACin against Salmonella spp.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in U.S. hospitals, 1975-1991.

This study suggests that hospitals of all sizes are facing the problem of MRSA, the problem appears to be increasing regardless of hospital size, and control measures advocated for MRSA appear to require re-evaluation.

These outbreaks again illustrate both the propensity of certain strains of S. aureus to produce epidemic disease, including rapid spread within the institutional setting, and the global nature of problems with antimicrobial resistance.

Antimicrobial susceptibility of coagulase-negative staphylococci

This review article will summarize the available data on the susceptibility of CoNS to individual antimicrobial agents and conclude that there is an association between the dramatic increase in CoNS as a cause of nosocomial bacteremias and the resistance of these pathogens to antimicrobial Agents.
