Staphylococcus aureus is an important pathogen because of its mutations in the 1960s which lead to the developed of a strain known as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) (Schinasi et al., 2013) which is resistant to antibiotics usually proscribed for treatment predominately penicillins is at strain of methicillin it is no longer as affective as it was. the development of the (MRSA) strain was by caused of patients not completing the course …show more content…
