clonal relatedness of methicillin-resistant coagulase-negative staphylococci in the haemodialysis unit of a single university centre in greece.coagulase-negative staphylococci (cons) are frequently encountered pathogens in hospital environment. dialysis patients, often carrying central venous catheters, are prone to cons infections. methicillin-resistant (mr) staphylococci in hospitals are resistant to multiple antibiotics and may cause an overall increase in the incidence of staphylococcal infections rather than simply replacing the more susceptible strains. the aim of this study was to evaluate the antimicrobial resistance and the cl ...200818305314
