    Telavancin Hydrochloride

    $153.31 - $751.91

    Telavancin Hydrochloride is the hydrochloride salt of Telavancin, a lipoglycopeptide antimicrobial that has bactericidal activity against Gram-positive bacteria including MRSA.  It was derived from Vancomycin, and has superior in vitro activity against glycopeptide-susceptible organisms. 

    Telavancin Hydrochloride is very soluble in water.

    Mechanism of Action Telavancin inhibits the synthesis of bacterial cell walls by binding to the D-Ala-D-Ala terminus of the peptidoglycan in the growing cell wall. It also disrupts bacterial cell membrane potential and permeability since the lipophilic moiety of the compound may interact with the lipid bilayer in the membrane.
    Spectrum Effective against Gram-positive bacteria such as MRSA, VISA and hVISA strains of S. aureus.
    Microbiology Applications Telavancin is commonly used in clinical in vitro microbiological antimicrobial susceptibility tests (panels, discs, and MIC strips) against Gram-positive isolates. Medical microbiologists use AST results to recommend antibiotic treatment options.

    Representative concentration ranges include:
    • Staphyloccus aureus (methicillin-resistant) 0.06-0.5 μg/ml
    • Streptococcus pneumonia (penicillin-resistant) 0.015-0.03 μg/ml
