Antimicrobial susceptibility for 25 stranis of methicillin senitive Staphylococcus (MSSA) and 25 strains of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), isolated from in-patients at Kosin Medical Center from January, 1989 to July, 1990, were tested by the tube dilution method. 1) For MSSA, sensitivity tests showed 21% was sensitive to cefadroxil. Seventy one percent was intermediate and 8% was resistant. 2) 96% of MSSA was sensitive to methicilline, 79% of MSSA was sensitive to oxacillin and 59% of MSSA was sensitive to amoxacillin/clavulanic acid. 3) 92% of MSSA was sensitive to trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole while 44% of MRSA was sensitive to the drug and 52% was intermediate. 4) All MRSA stains were resistant to methicillin, oxacillin, amoxacillin/clavulanic acid and cefadroxil. 5) Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole may be used for MRSA infection.
