- Comparison of detection methods for heteroresistant vancomycin-intermediate Staphylococcus aureus, with the population analysis profile method as the reference methodSarah W Satola
Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia, USA
J Clin Microbiol 49:177-83. 2011..0 McFarland inoculum. BHI screen agar with 4 μg/ml vancomycin and casein and a 0.5 McFarland inoculum had the best sensitivity and specificity combination, was easy to perform, and may be useful for clinical detection of hVISA...
- Clinical and laboratory characteristics of invasive infections due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates demonstrating a vancomycin MIC of 2 micrograms per milliliter: lack of effect of heteroresistant vancomycin-intermediate S. aureus pS W Satola
Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia 30033, USA
J Clin Microbiol 49:1583-7. 2011..Health care-associated community-onset infections were the most common and resulted in frequent complications and relapses. hVISA-infected patients were more likely to have been hospitalized in the year prior to MRSA culture...

Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, USA
MBio 4:e00021-13. 2013..The potential for the induction of cross-resistance to innate immune antimicrobials should be considered during the development of new therapeutics...
- Cepheid Xpert MRSA cycle threshold in discordant colonization results and as a quantitative measure of nasal colonization burdenEdward Stenehjem
Division of Infectious Diseases, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia, USA
J Clin Microbiol 50:2079-81. 2012..The C(T) is strongly correlated with quantitative nasal cultures. Clinical and infection control applications of the C(T) have yet to be defined and warrant further evaluation...
