Outline
  • Case presentation
  • Are vancomycin failures increasing?
    • Persistence of bacteremia
    • Metastatic foci of infection
    • Longer duration of fever
  • Vancomycin for MSSA
  • MIC creep of MRSA
  • Pharmacodynamics of antibiotics: AUIC
  • Consensus Guidelines 2009
  • Alternatives to vancomycin

case presentation mr 1283989
Case PresentationMR #1283989
  • 57 yo diabetic man admitted THD 2/08 with testicular pain and swelling
  • Required intubation, tracheostomy and was found to have MRSA in trach secretions 2/6/08
  • 7/19/08 readmitted with recurrent scrotal pain and swelling
    • 2/2 blood cultures drawn 7/9/08 had MRSA with vancomycin MIC of 2, daptomycin MIC 1.
    • Could not do TEE due to obesity
    • Received vancomycin 7/19 till 8/18 (30 days)
case continued
Case Continued
  • Readmit 9/8/08 with 2/2 blood cultures growing MRSA, Vanc MIC 2, dapto MIC 1
    • Vancomcyin 9/10-913/08; then daptomycin (MIC 1) 9/14-10/15 (31 days)
  • Readmit 1/27/09 with hip abscess
    • 1/30/09 hip abscess drained: MRSA Vanc MIC 2
    • Treated with daptomycin MIC 2
  • Hospitalized for unrelated problems 7/09
    • ASC in ICU 7/10/09 still positive for MRSA!
comments
Comments
  • Clearly received adequate dose and duration of vancomycin
    • Yet relapsed within 3 weeks of a prolonged course
  • This scenario is not new, but seems to be increasing in frequency
  • Has MRSA become resistant to vancomycin?
    • MIC of 2 is within the susceptible range defined by Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute CLSI (sensitive <=2, intermediate 4-8, resistant >=16)
how does vancomycin compare to beta lactams for mssa
How Does Vancomycin Compare to Beta Lactams for MSSA?
  • Chang et al. Staphylococcus aureus Bacteremia. 2003 Medicine;82:333-339.
we accept that vancomycin is inferior to anti staphylococcal beta lactams
We Accept that Vancomycin is Inferior to Anti-staphylococcal Beta Lactams!
  • What about MRSA?
    • Until recently we had no other choices.
    • Vancomycin is cheap, relatively safe, easy to give.
    • But is it effective?
    • What factors explain its apparent increasing failures?

MIC Creep

parameters of antibacterial efficacy
Parameters of antibacterial efficacy
  • Time above MIC (non concentration killing) - beta lactams, macrolides, clindamycin, glycopeptides
  • 24 hour AUC/MIC - aminoglycosides, fluoroquinolones, azalides, tetracyclines, glycopeptides, quinupristin/dalfopristin
  • Peak/MIC (concentration dependent killing) - aminoglycosides, fluoroquinolones, daptomycin

alternatives to vancomycin for less serious mrsa infections
Alternatives to Vancomycin for Less Serious MRSA Infections
  • Skin and Soft Tissue
    • Trimethoprim-sulfa (TMP/SMX)
    • Doxycyline/minocycline
    • Clindamycin if no inducible resistance
    • NOT LEVOFLOXACIN!
  • Urinary Tract Infections (always rule out bacteremia before Rx)
    • TMP/SMX
    • Not doxycycline or minocycline or linezolid
      • Not adequate urinary concentration
      • Plain tetracycline if susceptible (94%)
    • Perhaps, fluoroquinolones if susceptible in vitro
alternatives to vancomycin for serious mrsa infections
Alternatives to Vancomycin for Serious MRSA Infections
  • Daptomycin
  • Linezolid
  • Tigecycline (not for bacteremia)
  • Ceftobiprole (not yet FDA approved)
  • COME BACK 9/16/09 FOR PART II and HEAR MORE ABOUT THE ALTERNATIVES TO VANCOMYCIN!
