ABSTRACT
Researchers suggest that adding chromosomal and mec DNA genotyping information would help to clarify the derivation of community-onset isolates of MRSA. A classification algorithm based completely on clinical epidemiology would be of value to those without routine access to advanced genotyping techniques. Such a classification strategy would provide some degree of uniformity, which was lacking among the many studies that scientists reviewed. In addition, in infection-control efforts to prevent the spread of MRSA, accurately determining the reservoir for spread is of more interest than is the actual derivation of individual MRSA isolates.
