Microbial and fungal infections are a significant consideration in the etiology of all wounds. Numerous antimicrobial and antifungal formulations have been developed with varying degrees of efficacy and stability. Here, we report a nitric oxide producing probiotic adhesive patch device and investigate its antimicrobial and antifungal efficacy in vitro. This probiotic patch utilizes the metabolic activity of immobilized lactic acid bacteria, glucose, and nitrite salts for the production of… CONTINUE READING
