    Antimicrobial Resistance

       The adaptive potential of the microbial world
        is such that for each new antibiotic that is
        introduced, several escape mechanisms are
        soon devised.
       The action of antibiotics and resistance are
        linked like light and shadow: one does not
        exist without the other.

    Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus

     First described: 1961
     Definition: MRSA is a bacterium responsible for difficult-to-treat
      infections in humans. MRSA is a strain of Staphylococcus
      aureus that is resistant to a large group of antibiotics called the
      beta-lactams, which include the penicillins and the
     Resistance: The mecA gene (the gene responsible for methicillin
      resistance) is part of a mobile genetic element found in all
      MRSA strains. Katayama et al. demonstrated that mecA is part
      of a genomic island designated staphylococcal cassette
      chromosome mec (SCCmec).


       Hospital–associated strains of S. aureus                     Courtesy of the CDC
        still cause about 85% of all MRSA cases.       Large numbers of
                                                       Staphylococcus aureus bacteria,
       Hospital patients with S. aureus               which were found on the inside
                                                       surface of a catheter. The sticky-
        infections are five times more likely to die   looking substance woven

        than are patients without the infection.       is known as a “biofilm”.

        HA-MRSA, but is often no longer
        effective due to rising MICs.

        From HA and CA-MRSA

        Until recently, most MRSA infections started in
         hospitals, especially among surgical and
         immunocompromised patients. (HA-MRSA)
        In the early 1980s, new strains of MRSA began to
         strike healthy people in community settings – first
         identified in Detroit. (CA-MRSA)

                 1989 = 27%
                 2005 = 60%

     Strain Type – USA300

      Community-associated methicillin-resistant
      Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) infections are
      caused primarily by a single strain — USA300 — of
      an evolving bacterium that has spread with
      "extraordinary transmissibility" throughout the United
      States during the past five years, according to a new
      study led by National Institutes of Health (NIH)
      scientists. CA-MRSA, an emerging public health
      concern, typically causes readily treatable soft-tissue
      infections such as boils, but also can lead to life-
      threatening conditions that are difficult to treat.

        Described in 1932
        Gene common among CA-MRSA strains resulting in
         increased virulence (enhances inflammation and
         bacterial attachment)
        Toxins cause:
         –   Lysis of WBCs
         –   Dermal Necrosis
        Associated with necrotizing pneumonia (destruction of
         healthy lung tissue), fasciitis


        Commonly complain of infected pimples, spider
         bites, or sores.
        Usually minor carbuncles, furuncles, abscesses.
        Can be more extensive cellulitis, deep-seated
         abscesses, septic arthritis, pneumonia and sepsis.
        Should be considered in the DDX of all SSTIs.
        Aerobic cultures should be obtained on all open
         lesions/ draining abscesses.


        Some S. aureus infections can be treated
         without antibiotics by surgically draining the
         wound. Local incision and drainage and hot          Cultured Staphylococcus
         packs are first-line therapy for skin infections.   aureus on agar plate.

        Before prescribing an antibiotic, a doctor must
         determine if MRSA bacteria are present.

        CA-MRSA can demonstrate in vitro sensitivity

          –   Strong consideration for treatment
        MSSA isolates rarely develop methicillin resistance and
         typically remain susceptible
        Overuse of fluoroquinolones may cause:
          –   MSSA colonization replaced by MRSA post-exposure
          –   Increased expression of adherence factors promote host
              colonization via over-expression of fibronectin-binding protein

         12hrs. He also had influenza infection during same time period.

        CDC Analysis: Staph-USA300
        During same flu season: 4 similar deaths in Baltimore
        ID specialist John Francis (John Hopkins) led team of investigators
         who made the link between USA300 and influenza.
        ―When this strain of staph ends up in the same body as the influenza
         virus,‖ says Francis, ―the result is the perfect storm, a one-two
28       punch to the immune system.‖
     In Summary:
        Necrotizing pneumonia associated with PVL toxin is a recent
         described clinical entity. It mainly occurs in children and young
         adults (median age 15 years), is fatal in 75% of cases, and is
         associated with a median survival time of 4 days.
        Necrotizing pneumonia is mainly associated with PVL-positive
         methicillin-susceptible and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus
         aureus strains.
        Necrotizing pneumonia is often preceded by a viral-like illness.
         Viruses such as the influenza A virus have been isolated
         concomitantly with the PVL-positive S. aureus.
