Abstract

A changing molecular epidemiology of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bloodstream isolates from a university-affiliated hospital in Taiwan during a 4-year interval was demonstrated. The changing epidemiology is due to the introduction of a new epidemic clone (sequence type 5) and a local community clone (sequence type 59) of MRSA into the hospital.
