Detection of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus directly by loop-mediated isothermal amplification and direct cefoxitin disk diffusion tests Metwally, L.; Gomaa, N.; Hassan, R. (2014)We evaluated the utility of 2 methods for detection of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus [MRSA]directly from signal-positive blood culture bottles: loop-mediated isothermal amplification [LAMP]assay, and direct cefoxitin disk diffusion [DCDD]test using a 30 microg cefoxitin disk.In parallel, standard microbiological identification and oxacillin susceptibility testing with MecA PCR was performed.Of 60 blood cultures positive for Gram-positive cocci in clusters, LAMP [via detection of the FemA and MecA genes]showed 100% sensitivity and ...
Isolation and screening of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus from health care workers in Libyan hospitals Ahmed, M.O.; Elramalli, A.K.; Amri, S.G.; Abuzweda, A.R.; Abouzeed, Y M. (2012)This is the largest Libyan study to date to investigate the prevalence and antimicrobial susceptibility of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus [MRSA] among health care workers in Tripoli, Libya. A total of 569 doctors and nurses from 4 main hospitals were screened for MRSA with specimens collected from the anterior nares. Isolates from 109 of the 569 subjects [19%] were confirmed as MRSA by polymerase chain reaction assay; the majority [98/109] were from a general hospital. Antimicrobial resistance patterns tested by disk diffusion were ...
Awareness of World Health Organization methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus guidelines at Alexandria university hospitals Soliman, G.S.; Abu Youssef, R.M.; Saleib, B.F.; El Moughazi, A.M.; Zaki, A. (2013)This cross-sectional study aimed to assess knowledge of routes of transmission, awareness of MRSA control guidelines and reasons for non-adherence to guidelines among medical staff at Alexandria University hospitals. A random sample of 158 physicians and 47 nurses answered a self-administered questionnaire. Overall awareness of MRSA control guidelines was 67.3%, and nurses were significantly more aware than physicians [91.5% versus 60.1%]. The lowest awareness level was among anaesthesiologists; only 54.4% knew the correct transmission routes. ...
