seacommander answers:

Multi-drug resistance in E. faecalis is becoming a big problem and there is little available information on effective antibiotic combinations for vancomycin resistant E. faecalis. The following references do propose some possibilities and also provide some data that might contribute towards reaching a solution.


Treatment Options For Vancomycin Resistance
A typical treatment of choice for enterococcal infections is penicillin G or ampicillin
