To find the rate of nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus with special reference to MRSA among the medical students.
Nasal swabs from each anterior nare were taken from all the 50 study subjects and subjected to various conventional isolation and identification methods. All aerobic bacterial isolates obtained were then subjected to antimicrobial susceptibility tests by disc diffusion method employing the Modified Stoke’s technique against a wide range of antimicrobial agents. All the isolates of Staphylococcus aureus were screened for MRSA by Cefoxitin disc method.
