  1. Molecular epidemiology for local outbreaks of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) : the need for several methods.

    Article - En anglais

    Subtyping isolates may be useful for epidemiological studies of methicillin-resistant-Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) outbreaks.

    Among subtyping methods, DNA-based techniques have been applied very effectively for this purpose.

    An outbreak of MRSA infections took place in one hospital in Barcelona early during 1991.

    From the beginning of the outbreak to December 92,70 MRSA isolates from different patients and sources were collected.

    All strains were evaluated by restriction endonuclease analysis of plasmid DNA (REAP) and macrorestriction endonuclease analysis of genomic DNA using Sma I and pulsed-field-gel-electrophoresis (PFGE).
