Chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) is routinely used for skin antisepsis before surgery. Its activity may be affected by formulation ingredients and the presence of organic matter such as blood and proteins. This in vitro study was designed to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of a new CHG skin prep containing a film-forming copolymer, and detect its potential for development of resistance and the potential for cross-resistance to antibiotics after CHG exposure.

This study aimed to evaluate in vitro the antimicrobial effect of a bioadhesive chitosan-based oral membrane with chlorhexidine for local treatment of infections in the oral tissues. Five oral membran...
In this study, chlorhexidine-loaded poly(ε-caprolactone) nanospheres (CHX-NS) were prepared and successfully coated on the urinary catheters. Properties of CHX-NS were evaluated including drug loadin...
A series of aminothiazolyl norfloxacin analogues as a new type of potential antimicrobial agents were synthesized and screened for their antimicrobial activities. Most of the prepared compounds exhibi...
We present a brief overview of computer simulations over the span of last two decades that have made some serious attempts in providing key insights toward the mechanistic aspects of antimicrobial pep...
This study was conducted to determine the changes in antimicrobial activity of antibiotics (tetracycline, ofloxacin, and penicillin) and in resistance of Staphylococcus aureus RN 4220 (SA RN4220) and ...

The purpose of this research study is to determine if omiganan 1% gel (the investigational medication in this research study) is effective and safe when compared to chlorhexidine 2% (an FD...
Development of a library collection, including the determination and coordination of selection policy, assessment of needs of users and potential users, collection use studies, collection evaluation, identification of collection needs, selection of materials, planning for resource sharing, collection maintenance and weeding, and budgeting.
The ability of bacteria to resist or to become tolerant to chemotherapeutic agents, antimicrobial agents, or antibiotics. This resistance may be acquired through gene mutation or foreign DNA in transmissible plasmids (R FACTORS).

The development by insects of resistance to insecticides.
A bacteriostatic antibacterial agent that interferes with folic acid synthesis in susceptible bacteria. Its broad spectrum of activity has been limited by the development of resistance. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p208)
