Genotypic and phenotypic characterization of Staphylococcus aureus isolates from the respiratory tract in mechanically-ventilated patients

Abstract:
Staphylococcus aureus is a commensal and frequent colonizer of the upper respiratory tract. When mechanical ventilation disrupts natural defenses, S. aureus is frequently isolated from the lower airways, but distinguishing between colonization and infection is difficult. The objectives of this study were (1) to investigate the bacterial genome sequence in consecutive isolates in order to identify changes related to the pathological adaptation to the lower respiratory tract and ...
