Moreover, Lyme borreliosis patients who have live spirochetes in body fluids have low or negative levels of borrelial antibodies in their sera.
The success of MRSA control has varied substantially with different strategies [4,5]. Some European countries have managed to contain MRSA at a low prevalence using active surveillance cultures and contact precautions, with or without decolonization (examples include the Netherlands, Finland, and France) . Other countries have struggled to control MRSA epidemics but have progressed over the last decade (examples include Germany and Canada) . The countries with greatest MRSA prevalence include the United States and Japan . In the last few years, the incidence of MRSA infections in the United States has plateaued and is decreasing [8,9]. (See "Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in adults: Epidemiology".) Many important clinical studies addressing control of MRSA have been in intensive care units, including studies on contact precautions, decolonization, and the role of active surveillance. The clinical approach to prevention of MRSA infection among patients in intensive care units, including universal decolonization with chlorhexidine bathing, is discussed separately. (See "Infections and antimicrobial resistance in the intensive care unit: Epidemiology and prevention".) Issues related to prevention and control of MRSA outside intensive care units will be reviewed here. Issues related to the treatment and epidemiology (including transmission) of these infections are discussed in detail separately. (See "Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in adults: Epidemiology" and "Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in adults: Treatment of bacteremia and osteomyelitis" and "Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA): Microbiology".)
