Treatment of vancomycin-resistant enterococcal infections
Vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) are a growing healthcare concern, and since 2012 the incidence has increased eightfold in Denmark. Treatment options for infections with ampicillin-resistant VRE are sparse, and there are no Danish guidelines concerning this topic. For treatment of uncomplicated VRE urinary tract infections, ciprofloxacin or nitrofurantoin can be used. The mainstay of treatment of bacteraemia and other severe infections caused by VRE is linezolid or high-dose daptomycin. Combination treatment is recommended for complicated infections and/or prolonged therapy.
