Fosfomycin Plus Imipenem for Treatment of Infective Endocarditis
Evaluation of the Efficacy and Safety of Fosfomycin Plus Imipenem for the Treatment of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) Infective Endocarditis.

The study evaluates the efficacy and safety of fosfomycin and imipenem for the treatment of methicillin-resistant staphyloccocus aureus infective endocarditis in comparison to vancomycin, the standard therapy.
