Marta Hugas, EFSAs chief scientist said: The detection of resistance to carbapenems in poultry and to linezolid in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in pigs is alarming because these antibiotics are used in humans to treat serious infections.
To assess the susceptibility pattern of MRSA against vancomycin, linezolid, tigecycline, rifampicin, fosfomycin fusidic acid, clindamycin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole and teicoplanin, minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) for given antimicrobials were performed on 234 MRSA clinical isolates using automated VITEK 2 system.
Similarly, linezolid is an effective drug for treating XDR TB, but side effects such as neurotoxicity and hematologic toxicity frequently occur (6).

8) Currently, the therapeutic options approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the SSTIs by MRSA include daptomycin, linezolid, and the recently introduced, tedizolid.
The combination of bedaquiline, pretomanid and linezolid was recently shown to be very effective in the NIX-TB clinical trial, reinforcing the positive impact of research.
For Gram-positive organisms ampicillin, cefoxitin, cefixime, azithromycin, ofloxacin, amikacin, clindamycin, amoxicillin + clavulanic acid, vancomycin, and linezolid were used.
This multi-centre, randomised, double-blind study was intended to compare the efficacy, safety and tolerability of intravenous and oral Debio 1450 at two dose regimens with intravenous vancomycin / oral linezolid as an active comparator in 330 patients with clinically documented ABSSSI due to staphylococci, including mostly Staphylococcus aureus sensitive or resistant to methicillin (MSSA or MRSA).
Las infecciones complicadas debidas a ERV son un reto terapeutico para el clinico, debido a que las alternativas de tratamiento estan limitadas a muy pocos antibioticos como daptomicina y linezolid (15-17), a los que, incluso, ya se ha reportado resistencia (18-20).
