  1. Epidemic potential and pathogenicity in outbreaks of infection with EMRSA and EMREC.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    Hospital infection society. International conference. 2. London (GBR), 1990-09-02.

    Multiply antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli have both caused outbreaks in London in recent years, and for this reason have been referred to as E(epidemic)MRSA and EMREC respectively.

    In each case it has been questioned whether either organism has properties other than antibiotic resistance that distinguish them from other strains.

    Evidence is adduced to suggest that EMRSA has properties that enable it to spread particularly well, and that EMREC is particularly virulent.
