Abstract

PREVALENCE OF CFR GENES AMONG METHICILLIN RESISTANT STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS IN BAGHDAD

Raghad A. Abdulrazaq, Mohammed F. AL-Marjani* and Abdulsadah A. Rahi

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to determine the distribution of cfr gene in Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolates are leading causes of hospital-acquired infections in Baghdad. The resistance patterns of MRSA isolates were determined, 23% of MRSA isolates were resistant to chloramphenicol, all isolates were resistant to cloxacillin, followed by cefoxitin (86 %) and cephalexin (51%), 26% to lincomycin and 22% to rifampicin. A total of 23 chloramphenicol resistant MRSA isolates were tested for the presence of the cfr gene by PCR, the results showed that cfr gene found in 34.7 % of isolates.

Keywords: cfr gene, Staphylococcus aureus, PCR.
