Nasal carriage of methicillin
resistant Staphylococcus aureus among health care workers at a tertiary care hospital in Western Nepal.
Prolonged hospital stay was a risk factor for methicillin
resistance, whereas stay for >25 days was found to be a highly significant risk factor.
Comparison of four diagnostic methods for detection of methicillin
resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
A study that was conducted in Pakistan in the department of Microbiology, University of Health Sciences, Lahore to determine the in-vitro activity of linezolid against clinical isolates of methicillin
resistant Staphylococci showed that linezolid was effective against all the strains of methicillin
resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and methicillin
resistant coagulase-negative Staphy-lococci (MRCoNS) in the range of 1.0-4.0 mg/L and 0.5-4.0 mg/L MICs, respectively6.
The isolate displayed a [beta]-lactam-resistant phenotype without carrying the methicillin
resistance genes mecA or mecC.
The mecA gene was detected in all isolates to confirm the methicillin
Resistance against beta lactamase resistant beta lactams (methicillin
) was reported in 1961.
As clinical laboratory standards institute (CLSI) suggested (2011), to confirm the methicillin
resistance in the Staphylococcus, we could use the sensitive test to the Oxacillin and Methicillin
Association between methicillin
