Surgical site infections (SSI) constitute a significant health-economic and clinical challenge. The investigators conducted a cluster-randomized, cross-over study to compare the efficacy of plain soap and water (PSW), used ubiquitously across sub-Saharan Africa for surgical hand preparation, to alcohol-based hand rub (ABHR), with SSI rates as the main outcome measure. A total of 3133 patients undergoing clean and clean-contaminated surgery were included in the study and ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the antiplaque effects of an alcohol-free essential-oil containing mouthrinse - Listerine Zero (LZ) and an alcohol-based essential oils (EO+) mouthwash compared to a positive control of 0.20% chlorhexidine (CHX) mouthwash, and a negative control of a placebo solution (saline), using an in vivo plaque regrowth model of 3 days.
Background: Procedures of hand hygiene are an important component in prevention of cross-transmission of infections in hospitals. In recent years, hand washing with antiseptic soap (chlorhexidine) was replaced with use of alcohol-based hand rub. This change brought an increase in compliance with hand hygiene regulations from 30-40% to over 50%, and in other places up to 70%. However, even 70% compliance is not enough. One of the reported reasons for lack of compliance of staff ...
This study will assess the efficacy of two of the most commonly used surgical skin-preparation solutions: Chloraprep (chlorhexidine-alcohol) and Duraprep (iodine-alcohol) at eliminating bacteria from the hip site by evaluating the residual bacteria present following surgical skin-preparation.
The purpose of the present study was to examine the native bacteria around the shoulder and determine the efficacy of three different surgical skin-preparation solutions on the eradication of bacteria from the shoulder.
Conduct a randomized control study to compare the tolerance of 4% chlorhexidine gluconate/4% isopropyl alcohol versus povidone iodine vaginal cleansing solutions for surgical preparations of the vagina. Patients will be randomized to either control (povidone iodine) or experimental (chlorhexidine gluconate), and then be given a short survey prior to and immediately after surgery, and again 24-48 hours via phone asking them about the presence and severity of vaginal dryness, bur...
Surgical site infections (SSI) are one of the most common complications in the post-operative patient, and the second most common health care associated infection overall. It is estimated that there are between 500 thousand and 1.1 million surgical site infections in the United States each year. Given the magnitude of the problem, prevention of surgical site infections is a major goal of peri-operative care. However, skin preparation prior to surgery has not been as rigorous...
This is a randomized controlled trial to determine the influence of chlorhexidine gluconate surgical/topical antiseptic solutions on the bacterial environment of the vagina during hysterectomy and compare that to the effect of standard iodine-based preparations on the same.
The study team hypothesizes that at-home cleansing of the surgical site with chlorhexidine wipes provide no added benefit to decreasing microbial activity or preventing surgical site infections. Patients will be randomized to the chlorhexidine or no additional intervention groups. Patients will be randomized to use 4% chlorhexidine cloths, while the other half receive no additional intervention. Those randomized into the chlorhexidine gluconate home-application group wil...
Ethanol based hand sanitizers do not raise blood alcohol levels to a measurable amount. This study will determine to what extent, if any, heavy use of ABHS changes blood alcohol levels.
Clinical triple-blind randomized controlled trial to assess the use of two different mouthwashes to reduce the oral colonization by gramnegative bacteria in patients with chemotherapy induced neutropenia
The aim of the present study was to compare antiplaque effectiveness of two commercial mouthrinses: 0.12 % Chlorhexidine alcohol base (CLX-A) versus a diluted 0.1% Chlorhexidine non-alcohol base with 5% of Formaldehyde (CLX-F).

Aim 1: To determine in vivo capability of AvenovaTM against common cutaneous microbial biome on human skin Aim 2: To compare to povidone-iodine 5% solution, 4% chlorhexidine and isopropyl alcohol against AvenovaTM as a sterile skin agent
Primary Hypothesis: chlorhexidine gluconate antiseptic vaginal preparation is superior to povidone-iodine vaginal preparation in decreasing the bacterial load within the vagina when prepping prior to a cesarean section.
The accumulation and maturation of oral biofilm in the gingival margin is widely recognised to be the primary aetiological factor in the development of chronic gingivitis. Based on this association, the current treatment of gingivitis is focused on biofilm disruption, which will normally include mechanical processes, both professionally and at home. However, for patients, it is not easy to achieve a proper level of plaque control. The efficient plaque control techniques are ver...
The investigators hypothesize that application of 4% Chlorhexidine to the cord stump and meticulous hand washing by primary health care providers of newborn infants will reduce the incidence of Omphalitis and thereby Neonatal Mortality as compared to standardized dry cord care.
Clostridium difficile (C. diff.) infections, whether nosocomial or community borne, may present with profound diarrhea, especially in those patients receiving antibiotics. Based on a preliminary review of hospital data, the investigators have found that these symptomatic c. diff infections occur with a relatively high incidence at Delnor Hospital. Notwithstanding their high mortality, one recent study attributes a near quadrupling of hospitalization costs to c. diff infections....
Context: The neuraxial blocks, spinal anesthesia and epidural anesthesia are among the most frequently performed procedures worldwide, and despite the advancements of medical equipment, remain dependent on experience and practice of the anesthesiologists. Although antisepsis takes part of the daily routine, there are still no solid scientific evidence of the most appropriate antiseptic for these procedures. Objective: To compare the 70% alcohol and 0.5% chlorhexidine alcohol s...
The purpose of this pilot study is to compare the antimicrobial efficacy of silver nanoparticle gel to a commercialized alcohol-based hand gel on bacterial counts isolated from the hands of 40 volunteers seeded with Serratia marcescens, a surrogate microbial marker. Specific aims of this study are: Aim #1: Compare the immediate antimicrobial efficacy of a one-time application of silver nanoparticle gel (SilvaSorb , AcryMed, Inc., Portland, OR) versus an alcohol-based hand gel (...
The objective of the trial is to assess the impact of a disinfection and hand hygiene program on absenteeism in elementary school classrooms. Students in intervention classrooms will use alcohol-based hand sanitizers at school, and their classrooms will be disinfected using quaternary ammonium wipes. We hypothesize that the use of disinfectants and hand hygiene products in elementary school classrooms will reduce absenteeism.
The objective of this randomized, single-center, examiner-blind, controlled, parallel group, six-month clinical study is to compare the antiplaque/antigingivitis potential of a no-alcohol essential oil containing mouthrinse and an alcohol essential oil containing mouthrinse. A negative control group using only an ADA Accepted anticavity toothpaste will be included.
Surgical site infections are an important health indicator for hospitals and a significant medico-economic issue. The aim of the study is to assess the impact of chlorhexidine mouthwash performed before surgery on the bacterial colonization of the pharyngeal mucosa.
The aim of the study is to compare the effect of a suspension containing chlorhexidine and alcohol and another one containing clorhexidine with no alcohol in dynamic of the subgingival biofilm formation versus a Placebo suspension. The initial subgingival biofilm formation will be evaluated by means of Plaque Free Zone (PFZ).
