Abstract:

The study was done to note the presence of MRSA and Inducible resistance to Clindamycin in various samples of the Staphylococcus aureus from the Hospital. A total of 1607 of Staphylococci were isolated from various clinical samples like Pus, Wound swab, Body fluids, Urine, Vaginal swab, Throat swab and other samples coming from hospital. Among the 1607 clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus MRSA (Methicillin resistance Staphylococcus aureus) were seen in 695 (43.2%). Among this 188 (97MRSA, 91MSSA) isolates showed Inducible Clindamycin resistance that is resistance to Erthromycin and sensitive to Clindamycin sensitive showing D test positive. 524 (294MRSA; 230MSSA) showed Constitutive MLsB resistance that is resistance to both Erythromycin and Clindamycin. The resistance of inducible Clindamycin and Constitutive MLsB was more in MRSA than in Methicillin Sensitive Staphylococcus aureus. In addition to MRSA and inducible Clindamycin resistance other antibiotics were also noted.
