The evolution of increasingly antimicrobial-resistant strains of S. aureus results from a multitude of factors that include the widespread and sometimes inappropriate use of antimicrobials, the extensive use of various agents as growth promoters in animal feed, and, with the increase in regional and international travel, the relative ease with which antimicrobial-resistant strains cross geographic barriers.
