Brief description Multidrug-resistant extraintestinal E. coli and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus cause high morbidity and mortality in humans and have recently emerged in animals. This study will identify major animal reservoirs by establishing reference laboratories to co-ordinate an Australia-wide network of clinical isolate supply for characterization. Novel treatment and control strategies for recurrent urinary tract, skin and post-surgical infections will be investigated to reduce antibiotic selection pressure.
