Although patients receiving secondary prophylaxis prior episode of P. Children who have a history of P.TMP-SMZ is the drug of choice; ampicillin or chloramphenicol can be used if the organism is susceptible.
A case of disseminated Mycobacterium marinum infection following systemic steroid therapy. Suppressive therapy with systemic azoles should be considered in infants who have severe recurrent mucocutaneous candidiasis CIII and particularly in those who have esophageal candidiasis BIII.
Almost all farms included in our study contained only Italian sheep which have not been subjected to such kind of conditions associated with a greater use of antimicrobials.
In particular, only a small percentage used rubber gloves or disposable gloves during their job. Concerning the use of PPE during working activities in animal farms, a previous study showed contradictory data, 41 although it is possible that hygiene practices help to reduce the prevalence of MRSA among farmers.
Resistance found for some tested antibiotics is relevant, since it attained to molecules that play a potential role as therapeutic alternatives to treat MRSA and MSSA infections.
In our study, the highest resistance among S.
This figure is quite different from the prevalence of resistance found in the European general population, where resistance to tetracycline ranges from 1.
Instead, our study was conducted independently of the status of sheep farms, representing a strength of the study, since it allows a more realistic picture of the prevalence of LA-MRSA among sheep farmers.
Other host species were similarly investigated.
Samples were not collected from animals on the farms, so the presence of LA-MRSA strains and transmission of antibiotic resistance and strains between animals and farmers could not be directly addressed.
Moreover, we could not consider the prevalence of clinical or subclinical mastitis, because there is no standardized monitoring system in our area.
Different from a previous study, 25 the persistence of MRSA carriage was not determined in our survey, since the study was conducted at one time point; therefore, it is unclear whether colonization with MRSA is transient or permanent.
Conclusion In conclusion, the picture of LA-MRSA transmission among sheep farmers does not seem to be critical in our area, although there is the need to further investigate sheep and related sheep farmers colonization.
The implementation of PPE use and good hygiene practices could be useful to prevent S. Indeed, the demonstration that mecC-MRSA is present in livestock in Europe 16, 17, 53 highlights the need for monitoring the presence and evolution of mecC-MRSA in animal and environmental reservoirs.
