ANTIBIO RESISTANCE STUDY OFSTAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS STRAINS ISOLATED IN ALGERIAN HOSPITALS

Mohammed Bachir Pacha

Abstract


During 06 months (January-June 2013), 109 strains of S. aureus were isolated from 4270 specimens (pus, blood, puncture, CSF) from patients aged from 1 day to 76 years hospitalized in majority (89%). 58.7% of these strains from pus, and 53 strains (48.7%) were MRSA (multi-resistant). The 56 MSSA, less resistant, expressed in the majority of cases, a separated penicillin resistance. Finally, between these 109 strains of S. aureus, none is wild-type. Thus, antibiotic resistance seems still not overcome and the therapeutic arsenal is shrinking.
