Wilfredo Sanchez, M.D.

Topic: Therapy for MRSA-An

Summary: Vancomycin remains
as an inexpensive and safe treat-
ment of MRSA infections when
the MIC is low.

* Options for hospitalized
patients with complicated
skin infections: vancomy-

when considering antibiotic

* Further clinical studies
needed for MRSA bactere-
mia. This may include the
potential for daptomycin
and other novel agents in
early clinical trials.
