In disc diffusion tests, hyper-producers of penicillinase may show small methicillin or oxacillin zones of inhibition, whereas most true methicillin/oxacillin-resistant isolates give no zone.12
The most prevalent lineage USA100 tended to present multidrug resistance, with high MIC values for oxacillin, vancomycin, and daptomycin.
Antibiotics use were; oxacillin (1ug), cefoxitin (30 ug), ceftriaxone (30 ug), amikacin (30 ug), co-amoxiclav (30 ug), azithromycin (15ug), ciprofloxacin (30 ug), vancomycin (30 ug), and clindamycin (2 ug).
A large number of poultry meal samples contained bacteria that were resistant to oxacillin, aziocillin, ceftriaxone, streptomycin, bacitracin, cefuroxime, tetracycline and amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, whereas few samples were contaminated with bacteria resistant to ciprofloxacin, kanamycin and sulfa drugs.

Owing to improve in vitro stability, oxacillin, a penicillinase-resistant semi-synthetic penicillin, is commonly used in veterinary microbiology laboratories to detect methicillin resistant staphylococci (COLE et al., 2006).

Our study is planned to know the prevalence of MRSA among different clinical samples received in laboratory with the aim to compare the PCR of the mecA gene with four phenotypic methods--cefoxitin disc diffusion test, oxacillin disc diffusion test and MIC of oxacillin by E test and screen agar test for detection of MRSA.
