Staphylococcus aureus, a bacteria that lives commonly in the anterior nostrils, is seen in about 30% of healthcare workers. Applying mupirocin ointment, a prescription, to the nostrils twice daily for 5 days is the current standard of care for treatment to clear this bacteria. This research study is designed to determine the rate of clearance of this bacteria in healthcare workers who are carriers when using triple antibiotic ointment instead of mupirocin ointment.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Nasal Carriers of Staphylococcus Aureus
Neosporin (polymyxin B 5,000units, Bacitracin 400 units, Neomycin 3.5mg)

In this study the investigators aim to compare the efficacy of neomycin to a combination of rifaximin and neomycin in the treatment of C-IBS subjects with methane on their breath test. Thi...
The purpose of this study is to establish a concentration of a bacitracin-patch for diagnosing allergic contact dermatitis.
S. aureus nasal carriage is a well-known risk factor for S. aureus infections in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Strains of carriage and infections are the same in >80% of cases We recently sh...
Polymyxin B is already being used extensively in the USA and other parts of the world; its use is likely to rapidly increase due to the greater burden of infections caused by MDR Gram-nega...
The nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus is a major risk factor of S. aureus infection, notably in hemodialysis patients (HPs). Decolonization strategies were shown able to reduce the r...
Nurses frequently administer nasal oxygen therapy for patients in intensive care units (ICUs). However, little is known about the current status, nurses' management and perception on the nasal oxygen ...
Recent advances addressing the development of stimuli-responsive nucleic acid (DNA)-functionalized micro-/nano-carriers for the controlled release of drugs are presented. The DNA associated with the d...
Indirect detection and quantification of the neomycin sulfate antibiotic was accomplished in microbial fuel cells. Performance of the microbial fuel cells was examined on the basis of the following pa...
Bacitracin, a kind of cyclic peptide antibiotic mainly produced by Bacillus, has wide ranges of applications. NADPH generation plays an important role in amino acid synthesis, which might influence pr...
Nasal bone is prone to injury due of its prominent position on the face. Epidemiologic surveys are necessary to investigate nasal traumas. The aim of the present study is to examine the distribution o...
A mixture of polymyxins B1 and B2, obtained from Bacillus polymyxa strains. They are basic polypeptides of about eight amino acids and have cationic detergent action on cell membranes. Polymyxin B is used for infections with gram-negative organisms, but may be neurotoxic and nephrotoxic.
A complex of cyclic peptide antibiotics produced by the Tracy-I strain of Bacillus subtilis. The commercial preparation is a mixture of at least nine bacitracins with bacitracin A as the major constituent. It is used topically to treat open infections such as infected eczema and infected dermal ulcers. (From Goodman and Gilman, The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p1140)
Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.
The proximal portion of the respiratory passages on either side of the NASAL SEPTUM. Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.
Application of allergens to the nasal mucosa. Interpretation includes observation of nasal symptoms, rhinoscopy, and rhinomanometry. Nasal provocation tests are used in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity, including RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, SEASONAL.
Health care (or healthcare) is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in humans. Health care is delivered by practitioners in medicine, chiropractic, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, a...
