  1. Value of molecular epidemiologic analysis in a nosocomial methicilin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus outbreak.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective.-To evaluate two molecular epidemiologic methods used in the analysis of a nosocomial methicillin-resistant Staphyloccus aureus (MRSA) outbreak.

    Design.-Restriction endonuclease analysis of plasmid DNA (REAP) was used in the analysis of 45 MRSA isolates.

    After termination of the outbreak, isolates were retrospectively analyzed in a blind fashion using the newly described technique of arbitrarily primed polymerase chain reaction (AP-PCR).

    Molecular analyses were compared with epidemiologic and antimicrobial susceptibility data.

    Setting.-Tertiary care university hospital.

    Subjects.-Twenty-eight patients and 12 employees infected or colonized with MRSA during a 6-week period.
