Community-associated Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Switzerland
Figure. . Analysis of genotyping patterns, multilocus sequence typing (ST) results, presence of Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL), staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec) type, and country of patient origin of 13 community-associated, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates (CA-MRSA). The dendrogram illustrates the genetic relatedness of the 13 CA-MRSA in comparison to 1) 2 nosocomial MRSA isolates representing the prevailing endemic strain in the Geneva healthcare setting (strains B5-63, B5-64) and to 2) profiles obtained for strains MW2 and HT20030642 from the United States, 2 closely related CA-MRSA isolates used as controls.
