Research Location UPLB
Research Description This project aims to isolate compounds effective against locally isolated methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolated from carabao or cattle suffering from mastitis. This preliminary study against local MRSA isolate will be very helpful for the production of local antibiotics against MRSA for livestock.
