Telavancin had MIC50, MIC90, and MIC100 values of 0.03, 0.06, and 0.12 μg/mL, respectively, against methicillinsusceptible (MSSA), methicillin-resistant (MRSA), and MRSA multidrug-resistant (MDR) subsets of Staphylococcus aureus. Isolates with elevated vancomycin MIC values (2 μg/mL) resulted in a telavancin MIC50 (0.06 μg/mL) 2-fold higher than isolates with lower vancomycin MIC results (telavancin MIC50, 0.03 μg/mL). However, telavancin had MIC90 and MIC100 results of 0.06 and 0.12 μg/mL (100% susceptible), respectively, regardless of methicillin-resistance phenotype.
