    Clinical implications are medical consequences. So for example, if you discovered a new antibiotic that could eliminate MRSA effectively without generating resistance, the clinical implications would be that MRSA cases could be significantly more rapidly treated and the spread reduced.

    Very loosely, it would be more likely to establish an active infection for example.
