From: Prevalence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and pattern of antimicrobial resistance in mastitis milk of cattle in Chitwan, Nepal

Total antibiotics used No of Antibiotic-resistant
(species richness)
MAR index No of isolates resistant

  1. The mean MAR index of S. aureus is significantly higher than that of CoNS isolates (t57 = 3.168; p < 0.05)
  2. MAR Multiple Antibiotic resistance, S. aureus Staphylococcus aureus, CoNS Coagulase-negative Staphylococcus spp
