  1. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in Europe : Anaerobic bacteria and infections.

    Article - En anglais

    In order to obtain pan-European data on methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), 43 laboratories from ten European countries each screened 200 consecutive Staphylococcus aureus isolates for methicillin resistance.

    Only one isolate per patient was permitted.

    All participants used a uniform oxacillin-supplemented screening plate.

    MRSA isolates were sent to Munich for reconfirmation and further susceptibility testing.

    Phage typing of the MRSA strains was performed in Denmark.

    Of the 7,333 Staphylococcus aureus strains screened, 936 (12.8%) were methiciltin resistant.

    The proportion of MRSA in the various European countries ranged from <1% in Scandinavia to >30% in Spain, France and Italy.
