Assessment of the potential economic impact of MRSA to the Australian pig industry

Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Livestock-associated MRSA ST398 is reported to represent an additional burden and cost to MRSA infections in some countries. However, the impact of the newly emerged CA-MRSA strains, such as ST93 in piggery workers is uncertain. Recently, a high prevalence of ST93 carriage has been identified in pigs and humans on a pig enterprise, and reported this strain as an occupational health risk for the first time. The current study aims to estimate the potential economic impact due to MRSA carriage and infection among piggeryworkers in the Australian pig industry
