Abstract

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus MRSA from Malaysia were shown to possess staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec SCCmec-III and IIIA. Spa sequencing and multi-locus sequence typing MLST documented t037 and ST 239 CC8 for 83.3% of the isolates. This confirms observations in several other Far Eastern countries and corroborates the epidemicity of this clone.
