I've checked PubMed, Google, with daptomycin and prophylaxis, daptomycin
and clinical trials.  The requestor has checked Medscape.  What I'm
finding is daptomycin usage for "Complicated skin/structure infections
that are a common complication of surgery, foot ulcers, and burns", for
which it is FDA approved.  The requestor is interested in its use
prophylactically.  Any other search strategy suggestions, other than the
FDA site, that I might check before concluding that nothing has been
published concerning prophylactic usage?  Thanks for any and all help.
