Abstract

In this study, we investigated the colonisation kinetics and host specificity of three different clonal lines of MRSA (ST8, ST9 and ST398). MRSA prevalence on skin, nasal mucosa, conjunctiva, feacal shedding and distribution patterns of MRSA in internal organs in weaning piglets are studied.
