Abstract
The recent spread of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has brought increasing concerns of heightened disease severity and persistence following invasive disease. In line with the need for new treatment paradigms, two recent reports have shown that antibody-based therapies can restrict acute S. aureus infection and persistence and improve pathological symptoms.
