Control of hospital-acquired infections with vancomycin-resistant enterococci requires high quality antimicrobial(More)

Synergy between vancomycin and penicillin has been shown in vitro for isolates of Enterococcus faecium resistant to both of these antibiotics. We describe three isolates of vancomycin-resistant E. faecium which demonstrate unique phenotypic characteristics. The isolates exhibited(More)
