Summary Vancomycin is an antibiotic primarily used to treat infections by gram-positive bacteria. It works to block bacterial cell wall synthesis, by binding to a D-Ala-D-Ala sequence on the ends of the peptidoglycans that make up the cell wall. Bacteria can develop resistance to vancomycin by mutating D-Ala-D-Ala to a D-Ala-D-Lac sequence NDC Product Information. Pylera with NDC 58914-601 is a a human prescription drug product labeled by Allergan, Inc.. The generic name of Pylera is bismuth subcitrate potassium, metronidazole, tetracycline hydrochloride.
