The prevalence of resistance to β-lactams among clinical isolates of S. pneumoniae has increased during the last two decades. A similar trend has been observed for multiple non-β-lactam antimicrobial classes. , 2005). However, as a consequence of increased fluoroquinolone use in the management of respiratory tract infections, it now appears that we have entered a period of substantial change with respect to emerging fluoroquinolone resistance in S.

It selects for virginiamycin-resistant strains of E. faecium, which are cross-resistant to quinupristin–dalfopristin and which may pose a risk to public health. As a consequence, the use of virginiamycin has been banned in the European Union. Resistance to streptogramins can occur by at lest three mechanisms: modification of the target binding site; enzymatic inactivation; and active efflux. Altered Target Site The most important mechanism of resistance is a plasmid-borne target modification that confers resistance to macrolides, lincosamides, and quinupristin by methylation of their common binding site.
