Abstract

This longitudinal study on Staphylococcus aureus colonization in Nigerian human immunodeficiency virus patients (n = 187) found a trend towards a higher proportion of persistent S. aureus carriage in patients with advanced human immunodeficiency virus infection, low CD4+ cell counts, and a predominance of isolates belonging to ST8/spa-CC064 in persistent carriers.
