reduce the infection rate in soldiers [ 13 ]. Next to military training camps, community-acquired MRSAstrains were also infrequently (9 out of 67 [13.4%] total MRSA cases) observed in patients without identified risk factors in a US military hospital
results showed that all of the isolates from patients, personnel, and surfaces had hospital origin. In agreement with other studies [ 11 ], SCC mec type III was the most frequent strain among MRSAstrains. SCC mec type III has been found to be the main

the emergence of community-acquired methicillin-resistant S. aureus (CA-MRSA) strains is an alarming problem, possessing increased virulence and spreading abilities compared with the hospital-acquired methicillin-resistant S. aureus isolates [ 9

obtained from this study is that 18.75% ( n = 12) of the MRSA isolates could be considered as MDR (Table IV ). All the MRSAstrains were further taken up for elucidating the biofilm-forming potential.

-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains for either compound. The lowest MICs of 128 mg/L were determined for capsaicin against Bacillus subtilis and for DHC against Enterococcus faecalis (strain ATCC 29523) [ 20 ]. In another in vitro study, six capsaicin
