Abstract

The in vitro activity of dalbavancin was tested against biofilms of 171 staphylococci associated with prosthetic joint infection. Dalbavancin minimum biofilm bactericidal concentration (MBBC) values were: MBBC50 for Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis, 1μg/mL; MBBC90 for S. aureus, 2μg/mL; MBBC90 for S. epidermidis, 4μg/mL.
