The Infectious Diseases Society of America has issued its first set of comprehensive guidelines for treating methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

The guidelines detail methods for treating and preventing infections, including topics such as personal hygiene, wound care, antibiotic therapy and other options in the event of vancomyacin failure.

The guidance offers recommendations for community- and hospital-based infections off all types. As doctors are starting to see many more cases of skin and soft-tissue cases of MRSA, the guidelines offer more specific details on which antibiotics to use, and when.
