Daptomycin for the treatment of biofilm and catheter salvage
Daptomycin can be used for biofilm treatment (particularly central venous catheter salvage for S. epidermidis infected catheters). Catheter salvage with daptomycin shows rapid cidality, activity against stationary phase bacteria, and penetration and activity in biofilms. The present inventions provide formulations, methods, and articles of manufacture useful for biofilm treatment or catheter salvage involving daptomycin. Particular formulations include daptomycin in lactated Ringer's solution having a rapid kill curve against the bacteria of the biofilm.
