Time-based distribution of Staphylococcus saprophyticus pulsed field gel-electrophoresis clusters in community-acquired urinary tract infections

Abstract: The epidemiology of urinary tract infections (UTI) by Staphylococcus saprophyticus has not been fully characterised and strain typing methods have not been validated for this agent. To evaluate whether epidemiological relationships exist between clusters of pulsed field gel-electrophoresis (PFGE) genotypes of S. saprophyticus from community-acquired UTI, a cross-sectional surveillance study was conducted in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In total, 32 (16%) female patients attending two walk-in clinics wer… Show more

“…The worldwide prevalence of UTIs due to S. saprophyticus varies from 3.6% to 42.3% in women. [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8] In our study, we found S. saprophyticus to be an important cause of UTIs among female adolescents (24.5%), mostly in older teenagers (14-15 years old). Previous studies reported that the mean age in adult females with S. saprophyticus UTIs is lower than the mean age of the female population as a whole.…”

“…saprophyticus is coagulase-negative staphylococci that mainly colonizes and infects young sexually active women. [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8] Vincent et al 8 demonstrated that recent sexual intercourse, the frequency of sexual activity, and the number of sexual partners increase the risk for UTIs in young adult females. The prevalence of UTI due to S. saprophyticus is variable in different studies depending on the age group reported, timing of first sexual intercourse and its frequency.…”

“…In addition, we aimed to compare the PFGE band profiles of these isolates with five uropathogenic S. saprophyticus clusters previously described in this city [11]. …”

“…Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) is a gold standard test for epidemiological and molecular typing in a number of bacterial species. This method is used for the analysis of predominant genotype distribution and other PFGE types and determines the likelihood of transmission of isolates between subjects (Mohajeri et al, 2014a, Mohajeri et al, 2014b, Sousa and Rabello, 2013). Obtained results revealed that there was a variety of types of the bacteria in pediatric ward.…”
