Abstract:

Recently MRSA has become significant problem in hospitals and community. There has been few works on complete phenotyping, SCCmec typing and SCCmecIV subtyping.   With this background, this study was conducted to detect the prevalence, susceptibility pattern, association of PVL gene with CA-MRSA strains with SCCmec typing and SCCmecIV subtyping. Study was carried out at a tertiary carecentre for duration of 2 years. Samples were collected from patients as CDC-2000.  Total 395 samples were collected, MRSA was isolated from 80 samples (80/395; 20.2%). These strains were resistant to commonly used antibiotics but no VRSA isolated. mecA and PVL gene were present in 72 (90%) and 48 isolates (60%). The prevalent strain in the community was SCCmecIVc (40%). The sequences were deposited to genebank with accession NO.KF710034and BANK LT 1664623. The other SCCmec types were not present in the MRSA isolates. Worldwide we were the 7th person and from India we were the 2nd to deposit the strain of similar sequences. There is change in susceptibility pattern. Most of the genetic elements were carried by isolates. In future proper measures to be adopted to reduce the prevalence.


Keywords: CA-MRSA,PVL gene, SCCmec typing, SCCmecIV subtyping.
