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

Otherwise, if synergistic activity were expected, results should have been similar, since the final testing concentration of P was the same for both determinations but was just introduced at a different phase of susceptibility testing 5.

Initial quality control evaluations for susceptibility testing of dalbavancin BIan investigational glycopeptide with potent Gram-positive activity. The kappa statistics for E. With EUCAST guidelines being freely available it should be considered as an alternative especially in resource poor settings in order to maintain up-to-date antibiotic susceptibility interpretation.

This is another aspect that will require harmonization. Oritavancin activity against Staphylococcus aureus causing invasive infections in USA and European hospitals.

The concordance rate between the two guidelines in percentage was compared. Four hundred sixty-two Gram-positive isolates, including a challenge set of organisms with reduced susceptibilities to comparator agents, were selected and tested using the revised method for telavancin, and the MIC results were compared with those tested by the previously established method and several Sensititre dry-form BMD panel formulations. During the development of dalbavancin, also a lipoglycopeptide, the use of polysorbate 80 Clzi 0.

Telavancin MIC values obtained by the revised method were considered reference results for these analyses. It is also important to mention that although this revised method provides lower MIC determinations for telavancin, the antimicrobial susceptibility profile remains similar to that established by using the previous BMD method 1213— w23 Expanded recommendations for testing fluoroquinolones and m00, and elimination breakpoints for beta-lactamase, other than oxacillin cefoxitinpenicillin, and ceftaroline for staphylococci are included.

The revised method and subsequent differences in MIC results prompted the reestablishment of QC ranges for telavancin 9 and interpretive breakpoints 3. For additional information, visit the CLSI website at www. These accounted for the reduced level of agreement and may require further harmonization between clsii two breakpoints. Susceptibility data from a total of E. Background Over the last two decades, there has been emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance in many bacterial clinical pathogens [ 1 ].

During the development of this revised method, previous telavancin MIC determinations obtained when P was added only at the latest step bacterial inoculation resulted in MIC values against S.

Methods We reviewed minimum inhibitory concentrations MIC of various clwi routinely reported for Escherichia coli E. MS23 includes a dosage regimen for imipenem for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and new information for detection of inducible clindamycin resistance clso the D-zone test or broth microdilution for Streptococcus pneumoniae. Of the E.

In addition, P was incorporated into the test medium. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. AK and GO contributed equally in conceiving and designing the study, data collection, data analysis and drafting the manuscript.

Published ahead of print 14 July Further investigations proposed the use of dimethyl sulfoxide DMSO as the solvent for stock solution preparation, as well as cli stock solution diluent for panel preparation. The susceptibility rates for the various antimicrobial agents were also calculated in percentages for each organism.


For example, CLSI categorized Support Center Support Center. These breakpoints affect clinical clai making by determining whether an antibiotic is reported as susceptible or not.

This was a retrospective study reviewing the MICs of various antimicrobials on one commonly isolated gram positive organism, Staphylococcus aureus S. Our study is limited by the fact that we only compared the susceptibility for three bacteria whose results may not necessarily be generalizable to all clinically relevant gram positive and negative bacteria.

EUCAST guidelines eliminated the intermediate category for some antibiotics and this explains the reduced level of agreement for some of the antibiotics. Frozen-form panels produced according to the previously established susceptibility testing method were manufactured, following the previous CLSI recommendations MS23 This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. MendesPaul R. Lastly, the telavancin in vitro MIC results tested against Gram-positive organisms by the revised BMD method are now comparable to those reported for other lipoglycopeptide agents i.

The results presented here also validate a commercial dry-form formulation panel, which can be used as an alternative method for telavancin susceptibility testing in the clinical microbiology setting, along with adequate QC ranges and interpretive breakpoints 389. A United States FoodNet multicenter retrospective cohort study.
