  • A new topical antiseptic agent, 5 per cent polyvinylpyrrolidone-iodine (PVP-I) cream, with altered physicochemical properties, incorporated in a different carrier base has proved in vivo to be more effective in controlling burn wound infections than 10 per cent PVP-I ointment. Important biodynamic properties of the new formulation have not, however, been elucidated in vivo. Hence the need for a controlled study to evaluate the bioavailability of the active component after penetration through… CONTINUE READING
