Agents Local Anti Infective


  • Overall, qacA/B was the predominant gene detected, being present in 26.5% CNS and 11% S. aureus. smr and qacH were present in 12% of CNS, but were less common in S. aureus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Hence it is that the “antiseptic” method has been replaced in the surgery of to-day by the “aseptic” method (see Surgery ), which relies on keeping free from the invasion of bacteria rather than destroying them when present.[en.wikisource.org]
  • In 3 cases the presentation was asymptomatic and was detected by blood cultures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We report two patients who presented a contact photosensitivity to nonoxynol 10 contained in Hexomédine transcutanée.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Corneal Edema
  • Not only superficial damage but also toxicity to corneal endothelial cells leading to corneal edema was observed in all 3 cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term efficacy of Nd:YAG laser photocoagulation with that of liquid paraffin plus antiseptic cream in the management of recurrent epistaxis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subgingival plaque samples and periodontal indices were analysed prior to treatment onset as well as one and 3 months post-treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • However, management of intraocular consequences, including secondary glaucoma and corneal endothelial damage, still remains a challenge in the prognosis of such cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • We analyzed the effect of mupirocin plus antiseptic body wash on SSI rate and etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In 1861 he published a book, “ The Etiology, Concept, and Prophylaxis of Childbed Fever ”, but it was badly written and poorly received by the medical establishment. About 5 years later he died in a public insane asylum at the age of 47.[doi.org]

  • ., the pathophysiological approach of preventing tissue destruction by combating the “low-grade” infection (Fig. 2 a, b), unlike in conventional methods, such as silver nitrate etching or surgical resection.[doi.org]


  • Some are true germicides, capable of destroying the bacteria, whilst others merely prevent or inhibit their growth.[en.wikisource.org]
  • RESULTS: Antiseptics with broad-spectrum anti-infective activity and low resistance potential offer an attractive option in both infection control and prevention.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
