genomic characterization of oxacillin-resistant staphylococcus epidermidis and staphylococcus haemolyticus isolated from brazilian medical centres.studies on the genetic diversity of oxacillin-resistant coagulase-negative staphylococcal (cns) isolates are important for the control and prevention of infections. the present study evaluated the clonal diversity of oxacillin-resistant staphylococcus epidermidis (orse) and staphylococcus haemolyticus (orsh) strains, isolated from patients in nine brazilian medical centres by using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (pfge) after digestion of bacterial dna using smai. pfge analysis of orse (n=44) a ...200515571849
Characteristics related to antimicrobial resistance and biofilm formation of widespread methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis ST2 and ST23 lineages in Rio de Janeiro hospitals, Brazil.Staphylococcus epidermidis is a leading cause of hospital-acquired infections, mostly associated with the use of medical devices in seriously ill or immunocompromised patients. Currently, the characteristics of methicillin-resistant S. epidermidis (MRSE) isolates from Rio de Janeiro hospitals are unknown. In this study, staphylococcal chromosomal cassette mec (SCCmec) types, antimicrobial susceptibility profiles, biofilm formation genes, and multilocus sequence types (MLST) were investigated in ...201222100013
