Abstract

The term livestock associated methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) has been synonymous with sequence type ST398 since the identification of this lineage of MRSA in Holland. Subsequent research indicates borader genetic diversity of MRSA strains in swine, with MRSA variants belonging to MLST sequence type ST9, and ST5 also being reported in studies of swine in varioust countries.
