- Intermediate Vancomycin Susceptibility in a Community-associated MRSA Clone. Graber, Christopher J.; Wong, Margaret K.; Carleton, Heather A.; Perdreau-Remington, Françoise; Haller, Barbara L.; Chambers, Henry F. // Emerging Infectious Diseases;Mar2007, Vol. 13 Issue 3, p491
We describe a case of treatment failure caused by a strain of USA300 community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) with intermediate susceptibility to vancomycin and reduced susceptibility to daptomycin. The strain was isolated from the bone of a 56-year-old man with...
- Increasing Rates of Community Associated Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus in Children with Muscular-Skeletal Infections in Korea: A Single Center Experience from 2000 to 2012. Jae-hong Park; Taek-jin Lee // Korean Journal of Pediatric Infectious Diseases;2013, Vol. 20 Issue 2, p63
Purpose : This study aimed to explore how prevalent the community-related methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) was in children with muscular-skeletal infections. Methods : We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients of 18 years or under who were diagnosed with...
- Gene Expression Analysis of Children with Acute Hematogenous Osteomyelitis Caused by Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus: Correlation with Clinical Severity of Illness. Gaviria-Agudelo, Claudia; Carter, Kristen; Tareen, Naureen; Pascual, Virginia; Copley, Lawson A. // PLoS ONE;Jul2014, Vol. 9 Issue 7, p1
Children with acute hematogenous osteomyelitis (AHO) demonstrate a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations, ranging from mild to severe. Several advances have been achieved in the study of host immune response to acute invasive Staphylococcus aureus infections through gene expression analysis....
- Children colonized with MRSA prone to full-blown infection. // Infectious Disease News;Oct2011, Vol. 24 Issue 10, p32
The article focuses on a study which revealed that children who are colonized but not sick with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus are at an increased risk for developing full-blown infections.
- Increase in Community-Acquired Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus in Children. Frank, Arthur L.; Marcinak, John F.; Mangat, P. Daisy; Schreckenberger, Paul C. // Clinical Infectious Diseases;10/1/1999, Vol. 29 Issue 4, p935
Deals with a study which explored the increase in community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in children from Chicago, Illinois, from 1987 to 1997. Incident that led to the study; Data and findings of the study; Clinical significance of the effort.
- Enhanced cleaning may reduce infections. // Health Facilities Management;May2011, Vol. 24 Issue 5, p8
The article focuses on a study published in the "Archives of Internal Medicine" which showed that the transmission of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) can be reduced through enhanced cleaning methods in intensive care units (ICUs).
- Successful control of a Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus outbreak in a neonatal intensive care unit: a retrospective, before-after study. Iacobelli, Silvia; Colomb, Benoit; Bonsante, Francesco; Astruc, Karine; Ferdynus, Cyril; Bouthet, Marie-France; Neuwirth, Catherine; Aho Glélé, Ludwig Serge; Chavanet, Pascal; Gouyon, Jean-Bernard // BMC Infectious Diseases;2013, Vol. 13 Issue 1, p1
Background: Aim of this study was to provide a detailed description of a Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) outbreak management strategy in the neonatal intensive care unit of a university hospital. Methods: This was a retrospective, "before-after" study, over two consecutive...
- Routine nasal screening in NICU reduced MRSA cases. Zacharyczuk, Colleen // Infectious Diseases in Children;Mar2010, Vol. 23 Issue 3, p38
This article discusses a study on nasal screening for methicillin-resistant Staphyloccocus aureus in a neonatal intensive care unit.
- Complicating staphylococcal osteomyelitis is venous thrombosis. Burke, Michael G. // Contemporary Pediatrics;Jul2006, Vol. 23 Issue 7, p82
The article discusses research being done on the association of staphylococcal osteomyelitis with venous thrombosis (VT) in children. It references a study by B. E. Gonzales and colleagues, published in a 2006 issue of "Pediatrics." Investigators evaluated records and imaging studies of nine...
