Abstract

Humans have been found to harbor livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) isolates. LA-MRSA isolates are considered adapted to colonizing livestock and less pathogenic in humans than their hospital- and community-acquired counterparts. Here, we present nine LA-MRSA sequence type 5 isolates from veterinarians with long-term swine contact.
