Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)

Abstract

Vancomycin is a glycopeptide antibiotic used to treat serious infections with gram-positive bacteria that are resistant to other antibiotics. Patients receiving haemodialysis (HD) via central venous catheters are at an increased risk of gram-positive bacterial infections. Strains of staphylococci and enterococci resistant or only partially sensitive to vancomcyin have developed; therefore, appropriate controlled use of vancomycin is essential.
