The water-soluble N-methoxy-PEG-yl-, N-β-D-glucopyranosyl- and N-β-D-maltosylthioureido aglycoristocetin were prepared which, in contrast to ristocetin A, did not induce thrombocyte aggregation. The antibacterial activity of N-β-D-maltosylthioureido aglyco-ristocetin A against MRSA was comparable to that of ristocetin A, while its activity against Enterococcus faecalis (VRE, TSE) is somewhat stronger when compared to those of vancomycin and ristocetin A.
