Study Reveals How MRSA Infection Compromises Lymphatic Function

News

Infections of the skin or other soft tissues with the hard-to-treat MRSA bacteria appear to permanently compromise the lymphatic system, which is crucial to immune system function. Investigators describe how MRSA infection impairs the ability of lymphatic vessels to pump lymphatic fluid to lymph nodes in mouse models, which may contribute to the frequent recurrences of MRSA infection experienced by patients.
