Recent Conference Highlights on CA-MRSA

At Medscape, a transcript of Dr. Robert S. Daum's presentation on community-acquired MRSA, which he gave recently at the 5th International Symposium on Antimicrobial Agents and Resistance.

One quick quote: "CA-MRSA disease now appears to be epidemic at many medical centers in the United States. MRSA rates in excess of 75% have been documented for S aureus isolates from children presenting in pediatric emergency departments, such as those at the University of Chicago Children's Hospital and Texas Children's Hospital."
