A randomized Phase 2 trial of telavancin versus standard therapy in patients with uncomplicated Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia: the ASSURE study.
(BMC Infect Dis, 2014-05-23)
BACKGROUND: Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia is a common infection associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Telavancin is a bactericidal lipoglycopeptide active against Gram-positive pathogens, including ...
Polymorphisms in Fibronectin Binding Proteins A and B among Staphylococcus aureus Bloodstream Isolates Are Not Associated with Arthroplasty Infection.
(PLoS One, 2015)
BACKGROUND: Nonsynonymous single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in fibronectin binding protein A (fnbA) of Staphylococcus aureus are associated with cardiac device infections. However, the role of fnbA SNPs in S. aureus ...
Gene expression-based classifiers identify Staphylococcus aureus infection in mice and humans.
(PLoS One, 2013)
Staphylococcus aureus causes a spectrum of human infection. Diagnostic delays and uncertainty lead to treatment delays and inappropriate antibiotic use. A growing literature suggests the host's inflammatory response to the ...
Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia in a tropical setting: patient outcome and impact of antibiotic resistance.
(PLoS One, 2009)
BACKGROUND: Most information on invasive Staphylococcus aureus infections comes from temperate countries. There are considerable knowledge gaps in epidemiology, treatment, drug resistance and outcome of invasive S. aureus ...
Influence of host genetics and environment on nasal carriage of staphylococcus aureus in danish middle-aged and elderly twins.
(J Infect Dis, 2012-10)
BACKGROUND: Nasal carriage is a major risk factor for Staphylococcus aureus infection. Approximately, one-quarter of adults carry S. aureus. However, the role of host genetics on S. aureus nasal carriage is unknown. METHODS: ...
