Predictors and outcomes of linezolid-resistant vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus: a case-case-control study.

Linezolid is an important agent for the treatment of infections because of vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE). This study identified independent predictors for isolation of linezolid-resistant VRE (LZD-R-VRE) and analyzed outcomes associated with linezolid resistance. Immunosuppression, prior surgery, and previous exposure to β-lactam antibiotics were… (More)
