dalbavancin (Xydalba®) is accepted for restricted use within NHS Scotland.

Indication under review: treatment of acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI) in adults.

SMC restriction:

  • for second-line use or when meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is suspected, or on the advice of local microbiologists or specialists in infectious disease, and
