National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. These breakpoints affect clinical decision making by determining whether an antibiotic is reported as dlsi or not. Does the adoption of EUCAST susceptibility breakpoints affect the selection of antimicrobials to treat acute community-acquired respiratory clwi infections?

In contrast, when tested against streptococci, the impact of the revised method on the telavancin MIC results was less pronounced, which was similar s2 those observed for the other lipoglycopeptides 45. We reviewed minimum inhibitory concentrations MIC of various antibiotics routinely reported for Escherichia m1100 E. MS23 performance standards for antimicrobial susceptibility testing; twenty-third informational supplement; Telavancin MIC values obtained by the revised method were considered reference results for these analyses.

For resource cldi settings like Africa, there is need for guidelines that are accessible and affordable while still maintaining quality of reported susceptibility. Address correspondence to David J. In the same year new levofloxacin and ofloxacin breakpoints were introduced for Salmonella spp. As previously observed with dalbavancin 4 and oritavancin 5the data presented here, using a large collection of clinically relevant strains, shows that the revised BMD method containing the addition of P common to all three lipoglycopeptides provides lower MIC results than those obtained by the previous method, especially when tested against staphylococci and enterococci.

All authors read and approved the final manuscript. The revised method, along with QC ranges and updated breakpoints, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration FDA and incorporated into the labeling supplement for the product Vibativ telavancin 3. Further investigations proposed the use of dimethyl sulfoxide DMSO as the solvent for stock solution preparation, as well as a stock solution diluent for 1m00 preparation.


For all inferential statistics, a p value less than 0. Ann Clin Microbiol Antimicrob. Oritavancin activity against Staphylococcus aureus causing invasive infections in USA and European hospitals.

Jones are employees of JMI Laboratories who receive grant funds to study telavancin and were paid consultants to Theravance in connection with the development of the manuscript. In addition, P was incorporated into the test medium.

A total of E. Antibiotics analyzed included amikacin, ceftazidime, ciprofloxacin, cefepime, gentamicin, meropenem and piperacillin—tazobactum. Open in a separate window. Newly defined in vitro quality control ranges for oritavancin broth microdilution testing and impact of variation in testing parameters.

In view of the fact that no vancomycin w23 Staphylococcus aureus VRSA has been identified in our set up as yet, these changes are unlikely to influence interpretation of breakpoints. EUCAST eliminated the intermediate category for vancomycin in a bid to discourage the reporting of Glycopeptide-intermediate Staphylococcus aureus GISA due to poor response even to increased doses of vancomycin [ 816 ].

Results Susceptibility data from a total of E. In vitro activity of telavancin and comparator antimicrobial agents against a panel of genetically defined staphylococci. In summary, these study results demonstrate that the previous BMD method adopted by CLSI use of DMSO as a solvent and diluent for panel preparation and addition of P to the broth ensures a proper assessment of the telavancin MIC determination, especially when tested against staphylococci cllsi enterococci.


The MIC for the same was reduced from 1 to 0. Given that antibiotic susceptibility is quite variable across different settings, we clsk out to compare the susceptibility rates of selected antibiotics based on CLSI and EUCAST AST guidelines and the level of agreement between the two guidelines.

Gentamicin is rarely used cksi monotherapy in treating gram positive bacteria and as such this difference in MIC cut off clsk unlikely to be clinically significant. Some of the isolates included in this set 22 strains were provided by the Network on Antimicrobial Resistance in S.

Of the S. The previous method generated results against all E.

These results also were observed for oritavancin, indicating that the presence of P at 0. Background Over the last two decades, there has been emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance in many bacterial clinical pathogens [ 1 ]. Journal List Antimicrob Agents Chemother v.

The results obtained are also limited to MICs generated by an n100 bacterial identification system which is not widely used in developing countries.

Year by year analysis did not show any differences in trends and susceptibility patterns. Of the E. Moreover, earlier studies where the previous method was applied underestimated the in vitro drug potency. Abstract The reference broth microdilution BMD antimicrobial susceptibility clxi method for telavancin was revised to include dimethyl sulfoxide DMSO as a solvent and diluent x23 frozen-form panel preparation, following the CLSI recommendations for water-insoluble agents.

The susceptibility rates for the various antimicrobial agents were also calculated in percentages for each organism.
