Gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus is an opportunistic pathogen and a major cause of patient morbidity and mortality, especially in "at risk" populations. The organism can cause a wide range of infections ranging from mild skin infections to life-threatening bloodstream infections and pneumonia.
Prophylatic vaccines could prevent S.aureus infections and become cost effective in achieving savings from expensive infection control interventions e.g. MRSA screening on admission. Although all major companies have now announced S.aureus vaccine programs, Pfizer (SA4Ag) are the most advanced now the Merck & Co (Intercell AG) candidate, V710 has been terminated.
