  1. SSTI, skin and soft tissue infection; lukS/F-PV, gene encoding Panton-Valentine leukocidin; sea-see and seg-sej, gene encoding staphylococcal enterotoxins; tst, gene encoding toxic shock syndrome toxin 1; HLa- HLg, gene encoding staphylococcal hemolysin. P-value and two-sided P-value were calculated by the chi-square or Fisher’s exact test appropriately
