Abstract

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an important problem associated with significant mortality and morbidity and well known as a predominant bacterial pathogen. The aim of this study was to identify MRSA strains. In this study (June 2018 to June 2019) isolates of S. aureus were obtained from patients referred to teaching hospitals of Ahvaz, Iran. All isolates were confirmed by conventional microbiological methods. In following, antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST), MRSA screening, PCR detection of MRSA and LAMP assay were performed. Out of a total of 156 staphylococcal isolates, 126 isolates were identified as MRSA. Seventy-two (57.1) MRSA isolates were recovered from wound. All MRSA isolates were sensitive to vancomycin, linezolid, teicoplanin, quinupristin-dalfopristin, and tigecycline. The results of LAMP showed 100 agreement with PCR. Sensitivity and specificity of the LAMP assays for the mecA genes were 100 and 100, respectively. The LAMP assay is a rapid and simple method for the identifications of MRSA. Because of its performance without the need for specific instrumentation, this method can be easily employed in medical centers for the detection of mecA. © 2022 The Authors
