Activity of telavancin compared to other agents against coagulase-negative staphylococci with different resistotypes by time kill
Diagnostic Microbiology and Infectious Disease, 06/15/2012
Lin G et al. – Among 10 coagulase–negative staphylococci, telavancin, quinupristin/dalfopristin, and tigecycline were the most potent antimicrobials. Telavancin exhibited bactericidal effect to 9 strains out of 10 tested at 4× MIC after 24 h of exposure similar to those of vancomycin and daptomycin. By contrast, linezolid was mainly bacteriostatic and teicoplanin was bactericidal to 7 strains tested at 4× MIC after 24 h.
