Hi everyone. We have been talking quite a bit about the different antimicrobial treatments available for those with CA-MRSA abscesses, and I would like to focus briefly on a subset of this population: those with recurrent abscesses who are suspected of being colonized. In the study, about 7.5% of people in the mITT-1 population had a history of previous infection, which is not an insignificant number. What is the evidence behind decolonization? Do you use it in your institution? Would you recommend abx+rifampin or mupirocin?
