Staph Genes Studied

JAMA. 2005;294(16):2016. doi:10.1001/jama.294.16.2016-d

A new study by scientists from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and colleagues describes how community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) may evade the host immune response (Voyich et al. J Immunol. 2005;175:3907-3919).

MRSA bacterial strains are difficult to treat and are becoming more prevalent over time. Compared with hospital strains, community-acquired strains often cause more serious infections in otherwise healthy individuals.
