Abstract

Two hundred and sixty-four isolates of Staphylococcus aureus were collected; 163 methicillin-sensitive Staph, aureus (MSSA) and 101 methicillin-resistant Staph, aureus (MRSA). MSSA comprised: from Glasgow Royal Infirmary (GRI) 50 blood culture isolates (BC), 63 isolates from routine diagnostic specimens (RD) and fifty strains from nasal swabs of patients attending a general practitioner (GP). The MRSA from GRI comprised: 53 isolates from 1985-86 (MRSA(l)) and 48 isolates from 1986-87 (MRSA(2)).
