  1. "We are aware of strains of Staphylococcus aureus with PVL, but it is extremely rare in the UK" - Health Protection Agency
    Doctors alerted after rare bug kills marine
    11.09AM, Tue May 24 2005

    Doctors are being issued with advice about an extremely rare MRSA-linked toxin, after the inquest into the death of a young Marine recruit.

    Richard Campbell-Smith, 18, scratched his legs while training in Lympstone in Devon, and reportedly became infected with Panton Valentine Leukocidin (PVL), a toxin linked to MRSA.

    An expert at his Exeter inquest said the disease was thought to have disappeared in the 1950s - but she had seen two cases in nine weeks, and wanted to alert the public and medics.

    A spokeswoman for the Health Protection Agency told the Press Association: "We are aware of strains of Staphylococcus aureus with PVL, but it is extremely rare in the UK.

    "There is a surveillance scheme for this, but when we have Staphylococcus aureus samples in our laboratory we test a proportion of them for PVL.

    "We have issued advice for clinicians so that if they suspect patients that may have this infection, they can send us the patient's sample for us to test in the laboratory."

    they say it is not a cause for concern , i think it is
  2. I think that unless the science bods pull something out of the hat in the next decade or so with relevance to control of antibiotic resistant bacteria we're all going to have interesting lives.
