Tedizolid's anaerobic activity is unappreciated; it was active against all 332 anaerobic isolates at ≤2 μg/ml except Bilophila wadsworthia, and was more active than linezolid against B. fragilis group sp. (MIC90 1 μg/ml vs 2-4 μg/ml). Tedizolid was active against Gram-positive anaerobes (MIC90: clostridia 0.25-1 μg/ml; anaerobic cocci ≤0.06 - 0.25 μg/ml). Coupled with clinical reports, clinicians should consider its use in mixed infections where S. aureus and anaerobes are involved.
