Importantly, she and her associates recently published another study in which biocidal disinfectants failed to eliminate MRSA
from homes and appeared to increase the risk of multidrug resistance (Appl Environ Microbiol, online 22 Sep 2017.
Conclusion: The result of our study revealed an alarming rate of nasal carriage of MRSA
among health care workers of Jinnah Hospital, Lahore.
Conclusion: Our findings suggest that CA-MRSA
could be responsible for the majority of the infections caused by MRSA
within the hospital at which the study took place.
In 2014, there were a total of 797,883 hospitalized incident cases of MRSA
in the 7MM.
Conclusion: The present study highlighted that MRSA
is present in our hospitals with significantly high prevalence and drug resistance pattern.
The majority of the patients harboring these MRSA
strains were male (70%) and belonged to the age groups 21-40 years (46.
34%) were Hospital acquired MRSA
(HAMRSA) while 39 out of 152 isolates (25.
9,11) It is not entirely clear if there is anything unique predisposing these populations to MRSA
or if this might be attributed to living in tight communities with close household contacts.
Medical microbiologists and infection control practitioners in all 91 hospitals in the Netherlands were contacted and asked to collect data concerning MRSA
outbreaks and the results of subsequent contact screening retrospectively during June-August 2011 and prospectively during September-November 2011.
In addition, mean presenting Creactive protein levels were higher in the MRSA
and MSSA each were detected in 83% of untreated influent samples.
The incidence of health care-related MRSA
infections declined significantly from 14.
