MRSA (methicillin-resistant S. aureus) isolates have a similar cellular invasion capacity between colonization and infection, but differ with regard to spa type distribution from nasal MSSA (methicillin-susceptible S. aureus) isolates

B. Sinha, M. Raspe & J. Priller
Background: Data on spa type distribution of MSSA vs. MRSA isolates are limited. Fibronectin binding has been reported to correlate with the propensity to cause invasive disease. Here we compared spa type distribution of MSSA and MRSA, and tested the hypothesis whether cellular invasiveness predicts[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
