Abstract

This study investigated the effects of subinhibitory doses of the lipoglycopeptide antibiotic dalbavancin on Staphylococcus aureus toxin production in vitro. S. aureus toxin production levels were compared to those seen with the natural glycopeptide antibiotic vancomycin and with representative beta-lactam and oxazolidinone antibiotics. While neither dalbavancin nor vancomycin adversely affected toxin production, of these glycopeptide antibiotics, only dalbavancin significantly attenuated toxin production at subinhibitory concentrations. These findings support the recent success of dalbavancin for treatment of staphylococcal infections.
