Dalbavancin, a novel second-generation lipoglycopeptide agent, belongs to the same class as vancomycin, the most widely-used and one of the few treatments available to patients infected with MRSA.[1]

It possesses in vitro activity against a variety of gram-positive pathogens[2][3] including MRSA and MRSE. [4]It is a once-weekly, two-dose antibiotic that Pfizer acquired when it bought Vicuron Pharmaceuticals in 2005.[5]
