Disease relevance of MRSS


High impact information on MRSS

  • The MICs at which 90% of isolates are inhibited for daptomycin and vancomycin, respectively, were as follows: MRSA, 1 and 2 microg/ml; MRSS, 1 and 4 microg/ml; PRSP, 1 and 0.5 microg/ml; and VREF, 2 and >64 microg/ml [2].
  • OBJECTIVE: This study used pharmacoeconomic modeling to evaluate the costs and outcomes associated with the use of i.v. vancomycin compared with p.o. linezolid in the treatment of MRSS-infected patients [5].
  • BACKGROUND: Infections with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus species (MRSS) are associated with higher treatment costs than infections with methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus species in the United States--partly because of an increased length of hospital stay (LOS) [5].
  • INTERVENTIONS: Patients were randomised to receive propofol with or without EDTA and then to 1 of 2 sedation levels: light (Modified Ramsay Sedation Scale [MRSS] score of 2 to 3) or deep (MRSS score of 4 to 5) [6].
  • The incidence of antibiotic resistance among MRSS was significantly higher than that among methicillin-susceptibility staphylococcal species [4].

Anatomical context of MRSS

  • After treatment there was a statistically significant improvement in the modified Rodnan skin score (MRSS), attack frequency of Raynaud's phenomenon (RP), and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) in the CYC-group, but not in the AZ-group [7].

Associations of MRSS with chemical compounds

  • Ciprofloxacin and teicoplanin were the most effective antibiotics tested against MRSS, followed in activity by vancomycin and imipenem [4].
  • Within MRSS the most frequent resistances were those to erythromycin and norfloxacin [4].
  • Subjects performed off-ice fitness tests (vertical jump, 40-yd dash, Leger test for predicting .V(O2)max) and on-ice fitness (Modified 3-Repeat Sprint Skate Test-MRSS, blood lactate after sprint test) and skating performance tests (6.10-m acceleration test, Cornering S-Turn Agility Test) [8].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of MRSS

  • The mean age of the patients was 10.5 yr (2.9-16), the mean body mass index (BMI) was 18.3 (9.3-35.7), and the mean MRSS was 13.92 (range 4-25) [3].
  • Practical appraisal of a new rating scale (MRSS) for rehabilitation [9].
