Welcome to the MRSAtopic Blog!

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, known as MRSA for short, is a public health threat that has taken centerstage in popular media and scientific literature alike. Many people have been directly affected or watched family members deal with these difficult to treat infections, and thousands of North Americans are looking for reliable answers about MRSA to help them deal with the challenges they are facing.

The MRSAtopic blog was started with the intent of creating a trustworthy source for current news and background information on issues relating to the superbug MRSA. Topics will cover areas ranging from MRSA hospital acquired infection to details about antibiotic resistance to how MRSA affects us in the communities in which we live.

Hopefully everyone enjoys the posts, and if there are any specific MRSA-related topics you’d like to see covered just leave a comment and I’ll try to slot them in…

  1. I would assume adherence to universal precautions, including diligent use of personal protective equipment, would be sufficient to prevent transmission of MRSA to patients from healthcare providers that are carriers or have a history of a MRSA infection. Anything new for this issue?

  2. I have developed a novel, non-antibiotic ointment. In vitro testing at MicroBioTest, Inc. revealed the product capable of producing an eight log (> 200 million) MRSA, VISA and VRE in one minute. The product is non-irritating to the nares. It is capable of nasal colonization with a one day t.i.d. p.c. and h.s. regimen. A patent is pending. An IND has been filed with the FDA. I can send you more information if you desire.
