The effect of protein binding on the activity of teicoplanin against Staphylococcus aureus was evaluated. Bactericidal rates of teicoplanin in cation-supplemented Mueller-Hinton broth (SMHB) and in a 1:1 mixture of pooled human serum and cation-supplemented Mueller-Hinton broth (PHS-SMHB) were compared with those of vancomycin. Eight concentrations of each drug ranging from 15 to 150 micrograms/ml were studied in two series which correspond to the concentrations in serum achieved with low- (6… CONTINUE READING
