Oritavancin, a semisynthetic lipoglycopeptide with activity against gram-positive bacteria, has multiple mechanisms of action, including the inhibition of cell wall synthesis and the perturbation of the membrane potential. Approved guidelines for broth microdilution MIC assays with dalbavancin, another lipoglycopeptide, require inclusion of 0.002%(More)
