Author(s): Miguel O. Mitchell.

Abstract:

The emergence of nosocomial infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant Enterococci (VRE) has prompted research directed at the development of novel antibacterial agents to treat these diseases. This review will examine the literature on anti-MRSA and anti-VRE antibacterial research published between 2001 and October 2006.
