The Winner In The War Against MRSA Will Surprise You

 

Daily Health News Header #4

MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) infects through an open wound and results in lesions and boils. It is resistant to conventional antibiotics, and if it gets into your system past skin, it can kill. In the United States 2.5 million (0.84% of population) carry MRSA, whereas worldwide up to 53 million are affected. A defining characteristic of MRSA is its ability to thrive in the presence of penicillin-like antibiotics, which normally prevent bacterial growth by inhibiting synthesis of cell wall material.

The leading medication against MRSA is linezolid by Pfizer (PFE). The cheapest price for Linezolid is $79.82 per pill that has to be taken twice a day orally for 14 days. That’s over $2,200 a patient just for the medication. Linezolid’s nearest competitor closest to clearing the clinical pipeline is tedizolid from the same family of antibiotics. Tedizolid is developed by Trius Therapeutics (TSRX), which has been working on it since 2004 at a total cost of $135M. Trius ranked number 42 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the five hundred fastest growing companies in North America. Trius’ revenues grew 3,420 percent during the five year period ending 2011. Last year, Trius was ranked number 226 on the Fast 500 list (thus it was on this list two years in a row).

Tedizolid has already successfully completed one phase III trial for oral dosage, and is in the middle of its final phase III for intravenous treatment. The biggest advantage tedizolid has over Linezolid is that tedizolid is administered only once a day for 7 days. That’s a fourth of the number of pills and half the time needed for treatment compared to Linezolid. Thus, Trius can price tedizolid at $320 a pill (four times Linezolid at its cheapest) and still undercut Pfizer in outpatient costs.

That’s over $2,200 a patient just for the medication

Causes of MRSA Infections According to the CDC

 

How MRSA is Spread in the Community

MRSA infections, as with all staph, are usually spread by having contact with someone’s skin infection or personal items they have used, like towels, bandages, or razors that touched their infected skin. These infections are most likely to be spread in places where people are in close contact with others—for instance, schools and locker rooms where athletes might share razors or towels.

Factors that have been associated with the spread of MRSA skin infections include: close skin-to-skin contact, openings in the skin such as cuts or abrasions, contaminated items and surfaces, crowded living conditions, and poor hygiene. People may be more at risk in locations where these factors are common, including: athletic facilities, dormitories, military barracks, households, correctional facilities, and daycare centers.

Risks from Contaminated Surfaces

MRSA is found on people and not naturally found in the environment (e.g., soil, the ocean, lakes). MRSA could get on objects and surfaces outside the body if someone touches infected skin or certain areas of the body where these bacteria can live (like the nose) and then touches the object or surface. Another way that items can be contaminated with staph and MRSA is if they have direct contact with a person’s skin infection. Keeping skin infections covered with bandages is the best way to reduce the chance that surfaces will be contaminated with MRSA.

Even if surfaces have MRSA on them, this does not mean that you will definitely get an infection if you touch these surfaces. MRSA is most likely to cause problems when you have a cut or scrape that is not covered. That’s why it’s important to cover your cuts and open wounds with bandages. MRSA can also get into small openings in the skin, like the openings at hair follicles. The best defense is good hygiene. Keep your hands clean, use a barrier like clothing or towels between you and any surfaces you share with others (like gym equipment) and shower immediately after activities that involve direct skin contact with others. These are easy ways to decrease your risk of getting MRSA.

Hospitals and Healthcare Settings

Healthcare procedures can leave patients vulnerable to MRSA, which is typically spread in healthcare settings from patient to patient on unclean hands of healthcare personnel or through the improper use or reuse of equipment.

Hands may become contaminated with MRSA by contact with:

  • colonized or infected patients;
  • colonized or infected body sites of the personnel themselves; or
  • devices, items, or environmental surfaces contaminated with body fluids containing MRSA.

Appropriate hand hygiene such as washing with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand rub can prevent the spread of MRSA.

SHOCKING! Deadly MRSA Super-Pathogen Now Contaminates 50% of U.S. Food Supply

Our food supply is in trouble

I’m going to get straight to the point. Infections caused by the flesh-eating MRSA super-pathogen (i.e., drug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), now kill more people annually in the U.S. than AIDS.

Indeed, according to WebMD.com, MRSA is now responsible for a whopping 94,000 life-threatening infections and 18,650 deaths each year in the U.S. alone.

But four bona fide clinical studies I’ll show you in just a moment demonstrate that safe, natural colloidal silver — the world’s most powerful natural antibiotic — literally decimates the MRSA pathogen!

What % of our food supply is contaminated?

Here’s the bad news: A brand new study published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases has demonstrated that an average of 50% of all the beef, chicken, pork and turkey bought in five U.S. cities and sampled by researchers were contaminated with the deadly MRSA pathogen. That’s up from only 14% MRSA contamination found in studies conducted last year.

In other words, the problem with MRSA-contaminated meats in our food supply is skyrocketing! But health authorities are keeping it under wraps out of fear people will quit buying meat and devastate another critical part of the economy.

According to medical journalist Leah Zerbe, earlier this year researchers tested 136 total samples (80 different brands) of ground beef, chicken, pork and turkey purchased from 26 retail grocery stores in five U.S. cities. The shocking results: Nearly 80% of the turkey, 42% of the pork, 41% of the chicken and 37% of the beef were contaminated with antibiotic-resistant staph, i.e., MRSA!

Colloidal Silver Decimates MRSA!

As I mentioned earlier, numerous clinical studies prove colloidal silver handily destroys the MRSA pathogen. So before I explain how you can keep an unlimited supply of colloidal silver on hand for just pennies, and let you hear from a number of real-life colloidal silver users who have healed their own deadly MRSA infections, let me summarize just four of these important clinical studies for you.

After all, with MRSA now infecting half the nation’s meat supply, it’s become critical for families like yours to understand how truly effective colloidal silver is against this insidious pathogen, as well as how to use colloidal silver to stop MRSA infections dead in their tracks:

Case #1: Brigham Young Clinical Study Proves Colloidal Silver Kills MRSA — In this study, conducted at Brigham Young University, and published in the journal Current Science, it was found that a number of the antibiotic drugs which formerly killed drug-resistant pathogens such as MRSA could actually be restored to full efficacy against the deadly pathogens, but only if a liquid solution of colloidal silver was used in conjunction with the drug! Since these antibiotic drugs had previously lost their effectiveness against the super-pathogens, this study clearly demonstrates that the silver was the deciding factor in the deaths of the deadly drug-resistant pathogens!

Case #2: Iranian Clinical Study Proves Silver Increases Effectiveness of Antibiotic Drugs Against Staph — This study was conducted by the Department of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and Medical Nanotechnology Research Center at the University of Tehran, Iran, and published in the journal Nanomedicine. It demonstrated that the addition of silver to three specific antibiotics (vancomycin, amoxicillin and penicillin) almost magically renews their effectiveness against today’s most deadly pathogens, including MRSA!

Case #3: Taiwanese Clinical Study Proves Colloidal Silver By Itself Kills MRSA — This study was conducted by the Nanya Institute of Technology in Taiwan and published in the journal Colloids Surface B Biointerfaces. It demonstrated that colloidal silver kills both MRSA and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, another deadly and extremely opportunistic superbug. In this study, a special colloidal silver solution was tested on contact surfaces where the deadly pathogens are known to colonize, and from which they can spread to humans. The silver solution proved to be completely effective against both the MRSA and Pseudomonas super-pathogens!

Case #4: Czech Clinical Study Proves Silver Particles Kill MRSA — This study was conducted at the Department of Physical Chemistry at Palacky University in the Czech Republic, and published in the prestigious Journal of Physical Chemistry B. The study demonstrated that “…silver particles with a narrow size distribution with an average size of 25 nm showed high antimicrobial and bactericidal activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including multi-resistant strains such MRSA.” The study further demonstrated that very low concentrations of silver could be utilized to destroy MRSA, as long as the silver particles were very small, averaging 25 nm.

Real-Life People Using Colloidal Silver Against MRSA!

The above clinical studies published in bona fide medical and science journals provide ample evidence that colloidal silver destroys the MRSA pathogen. And in just a moment, I’m going to tell you how to make all of the high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver you could ever need, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, for just pennies, so you can help protect your family and friends against MRSA and other serious infections just like I do.

MRSA 300, the Most Virulent Strain of MRSA is Spreading World-wide

MRSA Can ‘Morph’ into Pneumonia

A flesh-eating form of pneumonia that is easily passed between healthy people on public transport is spreading across the UK and Europe from the United States, experts have warned.

The deadly strain of MRSA called USA300 passes easily through skin-to-skin contact. It can also survive on surfaces and so has the potential to be picked up on crowded buses, taxis and airliners.

USA300 is resistant to treatment by several front-line antibiotics and can cause large boils on the skin. In severe cases, USA300 can lead to fatal blood poisoning or a form of pneumonia that can eat away at lung tissue.

‘These community-acquired strains seem to be good at affecting healthy people – they seem to be much better than the hospital ones at causing disease. ‘They don’t rely on healthcare workers moving them around, which the hospital ones seem to.’

MRSA Continues to Evolve to Avoid Antibiotics

In a new research paper published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, Dr Massey and colleagues analysis the way community-acquired MRSA’s are able to adapt and fine tune themselves to spread outside of hospitals.

MRSA bacteria in hospitals has not been able to migrate into the community in the same way.

‘The ability of the MRSA bacteria to secrete toxins is one of the main ways it causes disease.

‘Using a sensing system, it carefully controls when it switches on its ability to do this, so as not to cause disease until it is firmly established within the human.

‘Many antibiotics target the cell walls of harmful bacteria, and to resist this, the bacteria have to make changes to their cell wall.’

Community-acquired MRSA strains have cell walls that are different to those seen in hospitals, allowing them to sense their environment and switch toxin expression on at the right time.

Chris Thomas, professor of molecular genetics at the University of Birmingham, said: ‘The key message is that strains of MRSA that are spreading in the community are better able to infect the young and healthy, precisely because they are not actually trying so hard to be resistant as the bugs that have been encountered in hospitals for many years.’

He said there was now a ‘need to worry about community super bugs that are fine tuned to spreading outside of hospitals and we all need to be extra vigilant about hygiene and unnecessary use of antibiotics.’

MRSA300 Tested Against NutraSilver and Guess Who Won?

In recent FDA-certified independent in-vitro lab test conducted in the United States, 1.3 BILLION cells of MRSA300 were tested against one drop on NutraSilver. In 60 seconds, 99.9999% of the MRSA300 cells were destroyed. The scientist who conducted these test were amazed at the result; who wouldn’t be?

How Can This Be True?

NutraSilver has the ability to switch off an enzyme in the MRSA cells, and virtually all other pathogens as well, so the organism can not use oxygen.  The result? The organism suffocates and dies very quickly. If you have MRSA, we invite you to learn more about how this amazing natural mineral can help you eliminate your MRSA without harmful antibiotics and with virtually no side-effects.

MRSA found on 80 percent of dollar bills and 50 percent of credit cards, according to SPC study

Paper money AND credit cards have MRSA on them!

A St. Petersburg College biological sciences professor and some of her students set out to discover how much, if any, “bad bacteria” is found on frequently handled fomites like paper money and credit cards. The preliminary findings from the study titled, “”Cash or Credit: Spreading the Wealth of Virulence Genes?”, were released Monday.

Shannon McQuaig, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Natural Sciences at St. Petersburg College spoke to the Infectious Disease Examiner Monday about the study and their preliminary findings.

Dr. McQuaig and her students tested paper money and plastic currency for this “bad bacteria” using molecular techniques looking for various antibiotic resistance and virulence-associated genes.

What they found was the high prevalence of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) on both the paper money and the plastic credit cards.

McQuaig said of the “non-hospital” (malls, fast food restaurants, gas stations, etc.) dollar bills tested, approximately 80 percent of the cash tested had MRSA on it. This compared to just 20 percent of the “hospital” cash (health care workers for example).

When asked about whether she was surprised by this finding, because the health care setting are a well-known source for MRSA, Dr. McQuaig responded, “Initially, I expected hospital-associated dollar bills would harbor the highest percentage of MRSA; however, after observing the lower percentage I did a little research into the matter and found a few things that may be contributing to the lower percentage.

“First, hospitals have advertised hand-washing/hand-sanitizing practices with flyers in bathrooms and on walls throughout the lobby, which increases awareness. Second, hospital bathrooms tend to use soap containing triclosan, while some organisms have developed resistance to triclosan; however, MRSA is still sensitive to this antimicrobial chemical. Third, according to the CDC hospital-associated MRSA infections have actually been decreasing over the past few years while community-acquired MRSA infections have been increasing.”

In addition, McQuaig and her students reported that 50 percent of the credit cards tested also tested positive for MRSA.

Being a higher percentage than expected, Dr. McQuaig told Examiner.com that credit cards are less porous and many sources have suggested the switch to plastic currency because of decreased contamination.

“I believe there has been a general trend to use plastic currency more frequently, as a simple convenience (I hardly ever carry cash), but as it is used more frequently it is exposed to more hands and thus possibly more contamination.

“Although, on average, credit cards are still not handled as much as dollar bills. Volunteers in this study estimated using them from once per month to 10-20 times per week”, she notes.

The study was paid for by a grant from The Foundation at St. Petersburg College. The goal of the Foundation is to provide student enrichment and faculty professional development.

Dr. McQuaig says once the study is complete, they plan to publish the data in a peer reviewed journal.

Staphylococcus aureus is a bacterium found colonizing (without causing infection) the skin and nose in one quarter to one third of people.

Methicillin –resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a highly resistant type, in which beta-lactam antibiotics (penicillins and cephalosporins) are ineffective in treatment.

What was once restricted to hospital infections, MRSA is becoming increasingly common in community acquired infections.

MRSA is primarily spread person to person via close skin contact, through cuts and abrasions and poor hygiene.

MRSA Now Accounts for More Deaths in the USA than HIV/ AIDS

The greatest challenge to medical science today is MRSA, the number one cause of infectious deaths in hospitals. Since the mid 1950’s

MRSA has evolved to become nearly invincible to most antibiotics. Because of this, science is frantically seeking a replacement the will eliminate MRSAsymptoms while avoiding the constant cycle of new antibiotic, MRSA mutates and is impervious to it so new antibiotics must be created.

Most people are aware that antibiotics destroy the “good gut flora (bacteria)” that comprises approximately 70% of our immune system within our large intestine. Unfortunately, antibiotics are taken at a time when we need our immune system the most.

“I am a 38 year old female, single parent… I was terrified, hopeless & knew that I was inching closer to the grave, I prepared my Last Will & Testament and I put a couple Life Insurance policies on myself. I was very depressed from it all. I couldn’t help but be anything but with the thought of leaving my son behind.

“Today…I sleep through the night, I am up early in the morning, no naps..I stay on the go, I am swimming 100 laps 6 days a week on top of my daily cardio & strength training. I haven’t had ANY energy to exercise since 2005!! I’m eating as a vegetarian now and since I ordered your product the first time around, I’ve lost 65 lbs that I had gained while I was down ill…with 20 more to go! 19 Hospital visit and NutraSilver was the only thing that helped eliminate MRSA from my body

“NutraSilver has brought me back to LIFE. It’s literally wiped out ALL of my MRSA symptoms & I now keep it combined with a Pro-biotic and Golden Seal. I maintain taking NutraSilver at a dose 40 drops a day. My son and I cannot EVER thank you enough..YOU helped save my life when 19 hospital stays & the strongest of medication couldn’t even make a dent!

Antibiotic Spreads MRSA – Proof from the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotheraphy

Common antibiotic boosts spread of deadly superbug

New research has found that cases of MRSA – a bacteria that causes serious infections of the skin, blood, lungs and bones – decreased when prescriptions of ciprofloxacin were reduced, suggesting that the common antibiotic is helping the deadly superbug spread through hospitals.

The University of London research- published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy – also challenged the widely held belief that improved hygiene and hand-washing significantly hinders the spread of the bug, the Daily Star reported.

For the study, researchers led by St George’s, University of London, tracked MRSA infection over 10 years from 1999 to 2009 at St George”s Hospital, looking at how it has adapted to survive in a hospital environment and what factors affected its prevalence.

Ciprofloxacin, a commonly used antibiotic, was found to be the culpret

They found that a significant drop in MRSA rates coincided with a reduction in hospital prescriptions of ciprofloxacin, the most commonly prescribed antibiotic of the fluoroquinolone family.

MRSA, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, causes hospital-acquired infection and is resistant to all of the penicillin-type antibiotics frequently used in hospitals to prevent and treat infection.

Hand-washing and strict hygiene procedures do reduce the spread of the bug, but the St George”s study found that they appeared to have only a small effect on lowering MRSA infection rates during the period studied.

Conclusive study

During a short period at the hospital, ciprofloxacin prescriptions fell from 70-100 daily doses for every 1,000 occupied beds to about 30 doses. In the same timeframe, the number of patients identified by the laboratory to be infected with MRSA fell by half, from an average of about 120 a month to around 60.

Over the final two years of the study, both the drug prescription level and MRSA rates remained at the reduced levels. It is not known how many of the cases examined in the study were serious.

St George”s said the research looked at whether other factors such as improved infection control measures might have contributed to the decrease in infection.

However, during a four-year period when more stringent infection control policies were introduced – including improved cleaning and hand-washing, and screening patients for MRSA on arrival at hospital – the only major reduction in MRSA infection rates coincided with the reduction in ciprofloxacin prescriptions, it said.

Whether you have MRSA internally or topically, gone untreated, MRSA can be fatal. For educational purposes, we have provided several pictures so you can better identify MRSA.

This is a common MRSA picture of pimple-like MRSA infection

Too often, MRSA creates a crater-like lesion on the skin.

Horrible looking boils that will probably be lanced to eliminate the pus.

Morbid to look at, some people actually wait too long to seek treatment.

This is what MRSA looks like under the microscope.

MRSA does not care where it shows itself.

Unfortunately, MRSA does infect innocent babies as well.

Gone untreated, MRSA can have devastating effects on newborns.

Effective Treatment for MRSA

California Hospital Forced to Move Babies to Another Hospital; MRSA Outbreak

MRSA Outbreak Affects Babies At Sutter Memorial

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – An infection outbreak has forced some babies to be moved from a Sacramento hospital to Roseville.

We’re talking about MRSA – a strain of staph bacteria so tough to treat it’s sometimes called a “super bug.”

Dozens of infants at Sutter Memorial were exposed, though only a few are infected right now.

The mother of one of those infected babies is demanding to know how it happened.

He already faced a battle, born at 31 weeks, a tiny 3 pounds, 12 ounces. Just days later – to his mom’s shock – Sutter Memorial diagnosed him with MRSA.

“I just think for them not to be able to tell my baby how he got MRSA is not OK,” she said. “They’re the hospital, they should have answers. They’re the one taking care of him.”

Most babies infected or “colonized” with MRSA

Doctors at Sacramento’s so-called “baby hospital” say two infants in the neo-natal ICU are infected. Twenty more have been colonized with MRSA. In other words, the highly contagious bacteria is on their skin but hasn’t turned into an infection.

The outbreak dates back two weeks.

“We’re trying to stop the spread of this right now,” Sutter Memorial’s Dr. Richard DeFelice.

Sutter Memorial shifted several babies to Sutter Roseville. They’re also cleaning beds and handrails multiple times a day instead of once. Families are urged to bring fewer people to visit the unit to reduce the risk of spread.

“We have not as I remember had this number of babies colonized,” he said. “It’s hard to tell that (the cause of the increase). Don’t know.”

Not following prescribed health-care practices?

He says it could be as simple as someone not washing their hands.

The two confirmed cases are said to be minor, non-life threatening infections. Still, parents have been warned their babies could be contagious even after they leave the hospital.

“They said he can’t go to the park, I shouldn’t take him to the park,” the mother said.

That mom says she is considering legal action against the hospital. Meanwhile, Sutter Memorial officials say they have control over the outbreak and they’ll continue to monitor it closely.

MRSA is killing more people than AIDS!

It is rampant in hospitals, gyms and within the community.  Most antibiotics are no longer effective against this kind of Staph infection, so medical science is frantically searching for a non-toxic solution.  As you will see below, NutraSilver killed 1.33 billion cells of MRSA in 60 seconds at the rate of 99.9999% with only one drop.

How Your Chicken Dinner Is Creating a Drug-Resistant Superbug That Could Kill You

Is your chicken dinner killing you?

The origin of these newly resistant E. coli has been a mystery — except to a small group of researchers in several countries. They contend there is persuasive evidence that the bacteria are coming from poultry. More precisely, coming from poultry raised with the routine use of antibiotics, which takes in most of the 8.6 billion chickens raised for meat in the U.S. each year.

Their research in the United States, Canada, and Europe (published most recently this month) has found close genetic matches between resistant E. coli collected from human patients and resistant strains found on chicken or turkey sold in supermarkets or collected from birds being slaughtered. The researchers contend that poultry — especially chicken, the low-cost, low-fat protein that Americans eat more than any other meat — is the bridge that allows resistant bacteria to move to humans, taking up residence in the body and sparking infections when conditions are right. Touching raw meat that contains the resistant bacteria, or coming into environmental contact with it — say, by eating lettuce that was cross-contaminated — are easy ways to become infected.

Investigators have been examining a possible link between growth promoters, chickens, and human infections since at least 2001, when Manges and others published in the New England Journal of Medicine an analysis of clusters of UTIs in California, Michigan, and Minnesota. The striking thing at the time was that the clusters appeared to be outbreaks caused by very similar E. coli strains that were resistant to the common drug Bactrim. In the United States, one out of every nine women has a UTI every year. If a single small group of E. coli was causing some proportion of the infections, that would be alarming — but it might also offer a clue to defusing the overall epidemic. Initially, though, the researchers had no idea where the strains were coming from.

Maryn McKenna – Maryn McKenna is the author of Superbug: The Fatal Menace of MRSA (Free Press/Simon & Schuster, 2010). This story was produced by the Food & Environment Reporting Network, an independent, non-profit news organization focusing on food, agriculture and environmental health.

Where is the research?

In 2005, University of Minnesota professor of medicine Dr. James R. Johnson published results of two projects in which he analyzed meat bought in local supermarkets during 1999-2000 and 2001-2003. In both cases, he found resistant ExPEC E. coli strains that matched ones from human E. coli infections. Other researchers soon found similar matches in meat–particularly poultry–from across Europe, in Canada, and in additional studies.

In that research, investigators began to sort out two things. They became convinced that the resistance pattern could be traced back to animal antibiotic use, because resistance genes in the bacteria causing human infections matched genes found in bacteria on conventionally raised meat. And they began to understand that E. coli’s complexity would make this new resistance problem a difficult one to solve. The strains that cross to humans via poultry meat “don’t establish themselves as big, successful lineages” of bacteria that would be easy to target, Johnson said. “But collectively they can cause a lot of infections, because there are just so many of them and they’re so diverse.”

Centralized SuperBug repository

There is no national registry for drug-resistant infections, and so no one can say for sure how many resistant UTIs there are. But they have become so common that last year the specialty society for infectious-disease physicians had to revise its recommendations for which drugs to prescribe for cystitis — and many infectious-disease physicians and gynecologists say informally that they see such infections every week.

But the origin of these newly resistant E. coli has been a mystery — except to a small group of researchers in several countries. They contend there is persuasive evidence that the bacteria are coming from poultry. More precisely, coming from poultry raised with the routine use of antibiotics, which takes in most of the 8.6 billion chickens raised for meat in the U.S. each year.

Their research in the United States, Canada, and Europe (published most recently this month, in June, and in March) has found close genetic matches between resistant E. coli collected from human patients and resistant strains found on chicken or turkey sold in supermarkets or collected from birds being slaughtered.

MRSA Infections: Even Vancomycin Isn’t Working Any Longer

MRSA Kills

TAKE-HOME POINTS

■ Vancomycin had been the drug of choice for the treatment of methicillin- resistant (MRSA) infections for many years; however, recently its efficacy has been compromised.

■ Decreasing vancomycin suscepti­bilities, increasing incidence of MRSA in­fections, and emergence of vancomycin-intermediate and vancomycin-resistant strains leading to clinical failures have made it necessary to reevaluate the options for the treatment of serious MRSA infections.

■ Consideration of alternative drugs for the treatment of MRSA infections is warranted when deciding upon the appropriate antimicrobial therapy.

Methicillin-resistant Staph­ylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a frequent cause of serious infections, such as pneumonia, bacteremia, endocarditis, and osteomyelitis. The incidence of MRSA infections has changed in the past 20 years, with 
an increase in hospital-acquired MRSA 
infections worldwide and the emergence of a growing number of community-acquired MRSA infections.1 For many decades, IV vancomycin has been the drug of choice for the treatment of these infections.2 However, the emergence of clinical isolates of MRSA with reduced vancomycin susceptibilities and reports of clinical failures with vancomycin, despite appropriate therapeutic doses, have created the need for considering alternative drugs.3

CHANGES IN MRSA 
SUSCEPTIBILITY

Although MRSA was first isolated in 1961, it did not become a worldwide problem until the 1970s. Its emergence as a frequent pathogen led to increased use of vancomycin. A glycopeptide with antistaphylococcal activity, vancomycin disrupts cell wall synthesis and arrests bacterial growth. Vancomycin rapidly became the mainstay for the treatment of beta-lactam-resistant gram-positive infections, especially those due to MRSA.2 By 2003, however, reports began to appear of clinical failures with vancomycin therapy of infections caused by susceptible MRSA strains.4 Since then, many similar reports have been published in which vancomycin-susceptible MRSA strains were identified and clinical failures resulted despite monitoring and maintenance of trough concentrations in a range previously thought to predict clinical success.5

Susceptibility of a microorganism to a specific antimicrobial drug is determined by the mean inhibitory concentration (MIC), the lowest concentration of the drug that inhibits the visible growth of the microorganism after an overnight in vitro incubation. The lower the MIC, the more susceptible the microorganism. Previously, MRSA strains were considered susceptible to vancomycin if their growth was inhibited at an MIC of 4 µg/mL or less. Susceptibility breakpoints for vancomycin were established by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) more than 25 years ago. Improved methods of detection and a growing body of clinical data resulted in a decrease in the vancomycin susceptibility breakpoint to 2 µg/mL or less in 2006.6 More recently, reports have demonstrated clinical failures with therapeutic doses of vancomycin for bacteremias and pneumonias due to vancomycin-susceptible MRSA strains for which the MIC was 2 µg/mL or less. This disturbing trend has led many to suggest that the time has come to redefine the MIC cutoff point even lower.5

Initially, MRSA infections were almost exclusively hospital-acquired. MRSA now accounts for about 60% of clinical isolates of S aureus strains found in ICUs in the United States.7 The nosocomial connection to MRSA infections was clearly established, but in the past decade, community outbreaks, including bacteremias and skin and soft tissue infections, began to appear. Through DNA sequence analysis, the origin of most of these emerging community strains was traced to hospital or long-term care facilities. Over time, there has been an incremental increase in the observed vancomycin MICs of clinical isolates of susceptible MRSA. Referred to as MIC creep, this increase has been correlated with clinical failures in the treatment of MRSA infections.8

BACTERICIDAL VS INHIBITORY 
CONCENTRATIONS

Use of an antimicrobial agent with bactericidal activity has been a long-standing concept for treatment of serious MRSA infection, but not all strains of MRSA exhibit a bactericidal response when exposed to vancomycin. Minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) is the lowest drug concentration that kills a microorganism. Vancomycin tolerance is defined as an MBC:MIC ratio greater than 32. Such tolerance has been reported in up to 15% of wild-type MRSA strains with vancomycin-susceptible MICs; however, the poor bactericidal activity of vancomycin in these strains poses a potential risk for clinical failure.3 Although the clinical significance of vancomycin tolerance is not fully understood, it has been associated with clinical failures observed in gram-positive infections of cancer patients.9

In addition to rising MICs and clinical failures with vancomycin-susceptible MRSA strains, diminished or even resistant strains have emerged in the past 15 years. Vancomycin-intermediate S aureus (VISA) was first observed in Japan in 1997. Originally set at 8 µg/mL, the vancomycin breakpoint MIC for VISA was lowered by the CLSI in 2006 to the current value of 4 to 8 µg/mL.6 Vancomycin tolerance has been observed in up to 74% of VISA strains.3 Vancomycin-resistant S aureus (VRSA) was identified in the United States in 2002. The CLSI lowered the vancomycin breakpoint MIC of VRSA from its original value of 32 µg/mL or greater to 16 µg/mL or greater.6 Vancomycin tolerance or frank resistance is seen in 100% of VRSA strains.3 Fortunately, the incidence of VRSA has remained low.10

Natural Alternative found that kills MRSA

 MRSA is killing more people than AIDS!  

It is rampant in hospitals, gyms and within the community.  Most antibiotics are no longer effective against this kind of Staph infection, so medical science is frantically searching for a non-toxic solution.  In FDA-certified independent in-vitro lab tests, NutraSilver killed 1.33 billion cells of MRSA in 60 seconds at the rate of 99.9999% with only one drop. If you took MRSA Staph bacterium the same amount of MRSA and placed it in a vat of antibiotics, nothing would happen!  MRSA does not care about Methicillin or Vancomyacin any longer!

Different Approach, Better Results

They are trying to turn off MRSA’s ability to reproduce with antibiotics; we have succeeded by switching of MRSA’s ability to breath! You can read the entire lab report here.

“I am a 38 year old female, single parent… I was terrified, hopeless & knew that I was inching closer to the grave, I prepared my Last Will & Testament and I put a couple Life Insurance policies on myself. I was very depressed from it all. I couldn’t help but be anything but with the thought of leaving my son behind.

“Today…I sleep through the night, I am up early in the morning, no naps..I stay on the go, I am swimming 100 laps 6 days a week on top of my daily cardio & strength training. I haven’t had ANY energy to exercise since 2005!! I’m eating as a vegetarian now and since I ordered your product the first time around, I’ve lost 65 lbs that I had gained while I was down ill…with 20 more to go! 19 Hospital visit and NutraSilver was the only thing that helped eliminate MRSA from my body.

“NutraSilver has brought me back to LIFE. It’s literally wiped out ALL of my MRSA symptoms & I now keep it combined with a Pro-biotic and Golden Seal. I maintain taking NutraSilver at a dose 40 drops a day. My son and I cannot EVER thank you enough..YOU helped save my life when 19 hospital stays & the strongest of medication couldn’t even make a dent!

“YOU GUYS ARE ANGELS!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!”
