Antimicrobial resistance is becoming an increasingly recognized global health problem. One particularly important worldwide threat is that of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which, by virtue of its highly virulent nature similar to its methicillin-sensitive counterpart, is capable of causing a wide array of serious illnesses, although with limited options for therapy. Recent advances in molecular science have resulted in an improved understanding of the genetics of methicillin resistance in S. aureus and have fostered the development of new molecular techniques for the laboratory detection of this emerging pathogen. This article will provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of MRSA, focusing on the epidemiology, microbiology, clinical features, genetics, and molecular detection of this microorganism.

Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
