Resistance to glycopeptides has not yet been reported in pneumococci, although vancomycin tolerance—the ability of bacteria to survive but not grow in the presence of the antibiotic—has been detected. Antibiotic tolerance is particularly insidious because it cannot be detected using conventional in vitro tests. , 1999). , MRSA, VRE, and VISA) is one reason for the development of newer antimicrobial agents with enhanced grampositive activity. Daptomycin is the first in a new and promising class of antibiotics, the cyclic lipopeptides, with a unique bactericidal activity against a range of grampositive pathogens (Thorne and Alder, 2002).
