Article excerpt

Background: Staphylococcus aureus is one of the important agents of many infections in hospitals and society. Increasing Staphylococcus aurous resistance to antibacterial drugs is one of the major health concerns.therefore studying antibiotic re- sistance of Staphylococcus aurous is very important and it has a main role in preventing creation of resistant strains.

Methods: The antibiotic resistance of 150 Staphylococcus aurous isolates from various clinical specimens was determined by disk agar diffusion (DAD) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods. Statistical analysis of data has performed by SPSS and Microsoft Office Excel software.

Results: Using the DAD method, 77/33% (116/150) of the Staphylococcus aurous isolates were resistant to Methicillin and 47/33% (71/150) were resistant to oxacillin. …
