Abstract: Patients and healthy individuals intermittently and inconsistently carry different methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) subtypes. In the present study, we assessed the clonality of methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) and MRSA strains in patients admitted to 1 of 6 intensive care units (ICUs), using spa typing and multilocus variable number of tandem repeats analysis (MLVA).
