  • We conducted another anonymous surveillance culture study in Feb 2006 – 133 spine patients noses were cultured in the OR 29% grew out Staph aureus and 4% were positive for MRSA – which was undiagnosed and therefore surgical prophylaxis with Vancomycin was not administered and no precautions were used in the OR, PACU or nursing units. These patients may also Have been discharged to a rehab facility with no flagging for precautions.

    2. 2. What is Staphylococcus aureus ? <ul><li>Staphylococcus aureus , &quot;staph,&quot; are bacteria commonly carried on the skin or in the nose of healthy people. </li></ul><ul><li>They are gram positive (purple colored) cocci in clusters on gram stain </li></ul>
    3. 3. Overview of Antibiotic Resistance <ul><li>Unnecessary antibiotic use. excessive and unnecessary antibiotic use. </li></ul><ul><li>Antibiotics in food and water. Antibiotics in livestock find their way into municipal water systems when the runoff from feedlots contaminates streams and groundwater. </li></ul><ul><li>Germ mutation. Antibiotics don't destroy every germ they target. Germs learn to resist others and mutate much more quickly than new drugs can be produced. </li></ul><ul><li>Transfer Factors – survival of the fittest – quantum communication </li></ul>
    4. 4. Past 60 years – Resistance <ul><li>50-70’s Staph aureus developed Penicillin resistance (blocking enzyme called penicillinase) </li></ul><ul><li>70’s Pencillinase resistant antibiotics (methicillin, oxacillin) </li></ul><ul><li>Early 1980’s – first cases of MRSA - Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus in US </li></ul><ul><li>Early 1990’s Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci (VRE) </li></ul><ul><li>Early 2000’s CA-MRSA (USA300) </li></ul><ul><li>Now - V.I.S.A. & V.R.S.A. </li></ul><ul><li>Vancomycin intermediate and Vanco resistant strains </li></ul>
    5. 5. What is MRSA? <ul><li>MRSA is the term used for a subgroup of bacteria of the Staphylococcus aureus species that are resistant to the usual antibiotics used in the treatment of infections </li></ul><ul><li>Not just resistant to Methicillin - often have resistance to many antibiotics traditionally used against S.aureus . </li></ul>
    6. 6. How Does it Get Resistant? <ul><li>Presence of the mec gene in the bacteria. </li></ul><ul><li>This alters the site at which methicillin binds to kill the organism. </li></ul><ul><li>Hence, methicillin and other antibiotics are not able to effectively bind to the bacteria. </li></ul>
    7. 7. Penicillin Binding Protein 2a <ul><li>MRSA carry a unique protein called PBP 2a (penicillin-binding protein) on the cell membrane that plays a key role in helping to defend against antibiotics. </li></ul><ul><li>Sspecific components of the bacterial cell wall interact with PBP 2a to form a chemical barricade. </li></ul><ul><li>New antibiotics will deactivate the protein so they succumb to the antibiotic. </li></ul>
    8. 8. CA-MRSA and HA-MRSA <ul><li>CA-MRSA Community-acquired Methicillin resistant Staph aureus </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Unique microbiologic and genetic properties compared with HA-MRSA may allow the community strains to spread more easily or cause more skin disease </li></ul></ul><ul><li>HA-MRSA Healthcare-acquired Methicillin resistant Staph aureus </li></ul><ul><li>Many hospitals now seeing CA-MRSA in healthcare associated infections </li></ul>
    9. 9. Differences in Strains <ul><li>HA-MRSA </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pulse field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) USA 100, 200 & 500 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Less mobile </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Panton valentine leucocidin (PVL) gene rare </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>More resistant to antibiotics </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CA-MRSA </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pulse field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) USA 300, 400, 1000 &1100 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>More mobile </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PVL gene more common </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Less resistant to abx </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Clindamycin resistance developing in USA 300 strains </li></ul></ul>
    10. 10. Community-acquired (CA)-MRSA <ul><li>Susceptible to Clindamycin, Tetracyclines, and Bactrim </li></ul><ul><li>Genotypes of CA-MRSA </li></ul><ul><ul><li>most common in US is clonal cluster ST-8 classified by the CDC as &quot;USA 300.&quot; </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CA-MRSA has a novel methicillin-resistance cassette element: type SCC mec IV, which has not been found in HA-MRSA isolates </li></ul><ul><li>CA-MRSA is more likely to encode for the Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL) toxin </li></ul><ul><ul><li>virulence factor associated with severe necrotizing pneumonia and skin and soft-tissue infections. </li></ul></ul>
    11. 11. Severe CA-MRSA – Not PVL <ul><li>Most scientists believed the cause of severe CA-MRSA infection was Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL) toxin released by the organism </li></ul><ul><li>However, a study indicating that PVL does not play a major role in CA- MRSA infections was published in 2006 </li></ul><ul><li>Question: what does???? </li></ul><ul><li>Reference: J Voyich et al. Is Panton-Valentine leukocidin the major virulence determinant in community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus disease? The Journal of Infectious Diseases 194(12), 2006 </li></ul>
    12. 12. Phenol Soluble Modulin Protein <ul><li>Newly described proteins in CA-MRSA </li></ul><ul><ul><li>members of the phenol-soluble modulin (PSM) protein family </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CA-MRSA strains attract and then destroy protective human white blood cells </li></ul><ul><ul><li>eliminates immune defense mechanisms </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>production of the protein was typically higher in CA-MRSA strains </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Release Panton Valentine Leukocidin virulence toxin to destroy tissue </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Identification of novel cytolytic peptides as key virulence determinants of community-associated MRSA.

    13. 13. Vancomycin Resistance <ul><li>In 1996, the first clinical isolate - Japan </li></ul><ul><li>In June 2002, Vancomycin Resistant Staph aureus (VRSA) isolated from a intravenous catheter site </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Michigan resident aged 40 years with diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, and chronic renal failure </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It contained the Van A resistance gene – from VRE </li></ul></ul><ul><li>vanA in this VRSA - acquired through exchange of genetic material from the vancomycin-resistant enterococcus also isolated from the swab culture </li></ul><ul><li>MMWR July 5, 2002 / 51(26);565-567 </li></ul>
    14. 14. New, lethal MRSA strain emerges…… <ul><li>A new strain of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is emerging </li></ul><ul><li>Researchers with Henry Ford Hospital say the USA600 strain is partially immune to vancomycin </li></ul><ul><li>Half of the USA600-infected patients in the study died within a month, a death rate five times that of those infected with known MRSA strains. (Ordinarily, 11 percent of patients infected with MRSA die within 30 days) </li></ul><ul><li>Factor may be age - those with the strain were, on average, 64 years old, as compared with 52 years old for other MRSA-infected people. </li></ul><ul><li>Source: Presentation at the Infectious Diseases Society of America, October 29, 2009 </li></ul>
