MRSA pneumonia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Infections due to multi-drug resistant (MDR) organisms are a burgeoning problem in the treatment of increasingly complex medical patients. In particular, respiratory infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) are especially challenging. Whether acquired from the community or nosocomially, these highly adaptable bacteria possess distinctive genes for antibiotic resistance and toxins that present significant obstacles to effective care.
