Dalbavancin is a novel, semisynthetic lipoglycopeptide antibacterial with a pharmacokinetic profile that allows weekly dosing. It has potent in vitro activity against gram-positive bacteria, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and it is superior to most of the other antibiotics used to treat gram-positive bacterial infections, including vancomycin.
