Infection of medical devices causes significant morbidity and mortality and considerable research effort has been directed at solving this problem. The aim of this study was to assess the biological performance of a novel furanone compound that has potential as an anti-infective coating for medical devices. This study examined in vitro leukocyte response following exposure to the antibacterial 3-(1'-bromohexyl)-5-dibromomethylene-2(5H)-furanone and assessed the tissue response following… CONTINUE READING
