Isolation and Characterization of Staphylococcus aureus Bacteriophages
Staphylococcus aureus infections have become problematic not only in community based infections, but also in nosocomial infections due to its high frequency of antibiotic resistance. MRSA and VRSA infections are difficult to treat conventionally. Therefore, the use of specific bacteriophage that target these antibiotic resistant strains of S. aureus is a potential alternative treatment strategy for these infections. Bacteriophage have been isolated from sewage and amplified in the presence of S. aureus. Several strains of S. aureus that have been isolated from human and laboratory sources are ...
