aureus isolates from healthy, community-based children in the Houston area displayed resistance to topical antibiotics
, including MRSA.

prophylaxis," Retina, vol.
Evidence has shown that topical 5% povidine is most effective in reducing the incidence of infection post-intravitreal intervention; pre- and post-injection topical antibiotics
do not alter the incidence.7 The use of a lid speculum and face mask has been suggested as a prevention strategy; however, different studies vary in their results regarding their efficacy.
, including clindamycin and erythromycin, work through both their antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory affects.
Global topical antibiotic
pharmaceutical market has been segmented into product type, distribution channels and geography.
The patient's symptoms resolved completely with removal of the eyelash and topical antibiotic
With prompt topical antibiotic
and steroid therapy (moxifloxacin and tobramycin two hourly alternate and dexamethasone one hourly) the hypopyon was disappeared within two days (Fig.3) and corneal edema within five days (Fig.
In our topical antibiotic
treatment, we swabbed on an over-the-counter, human oral antibiotic rinse (Rincinol[TM], GUM, Chicago, IL) to completely cover (thin layer and the same amount on each fish) the incision site.
has acquired worldwide tights to Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc.'s Metronidazole 1.3% vaginal gel development product, a topical antibiotic

They also found no evidence that using an oral, topical antibiotic
prior to dental procedures prevents PJIs.
There are multiple risk factors that increase the incidence of AO which included; difficult extraction with excessive bone trauma, preoperative infection, tobacco use, contraceptive, poor oral hygiene, and less experienced surgeon.2,3,7 Many methods have been used to reduce the incidence of this complication8 including systemic antibiotics, topical antibiotic
mouthwashes, and placement of medicated pack in the surgical socket.
As topical antibiotic
treatment is often effective and seldom harmful, most experts would start with a wide-spectrum antibiotic on an empiric basis and make a request for cultures if drug resistance is suspected (WHO, 2004).
treatment results in more clinical cures and earlier cessation of symptoms with fewer adverse effects than oral treatment (Dohar et al., 2006); topical quinolone antibiotics can clear aural discharge more effectively than systemic antibiotics (Macfayden, 2005).
We prospectively studied all patients who were under sedation in the adult general ICU of a large university hospital in Southern Greece, to investigate the time-dependent ocular surface bacterial colonisation and to evaluate whether early detection and proper topical antibiotic
prophylaxis could prohibit corneal infection.
Inhibition was demonstrated against all of the strains of MRSA that were tested, using levels of PYN6 that were some tenfold less than that typically needed to achieve inhibition with mupirocin, the topical antibiotic
, currently routinely used for treatment of skin infections involving MRSA.
