The aim of this study was to compare the in vitro activity of ethanol, EDTA and levofloxacin (Levo), alone or in combination, on biofilms of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia recovered from patients with catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs) at a university hospital in Argentina. First, 24 and 48 h biofilms were formed in microtitre plates and challenged with 25 or 40 % ethanol for 1 h. Biofilms, of the 14 local isolates and from the reference strain K279a, were eradicated after both… 
In Vitro and In Vivo activity of a novel catheter lock solution against bacterial and fungal biofilms
TLDR
A new commercially developed antimicrobial catheter lock solution (ACL) containing trimethoprim and ethanol and CA-EDTA 3% is evaluated for activity against bacterial and fungal biofilms using in vitro and in vivo (rabbit) catheter biofilm models to demonstrate that ACL was efficacious against both adhesion phase and mature biofilmms formed by bacteria and fungi in vitro as well as in vivo.
In Vitro and In Vivo Activity of a Novel Catheter Lock Solution against Bacterial and Fungal Biofilms
TLDR
A new commercially developed antimicrobial catheter lock solution (ACL), containing trimethoprim (5 mg/ml), ethanol (25%), and calcium EDTA (Ca-EDTA) (3%), for activity against bacterial and fungal biofilms, using in vitro and in vivo (rabbit) catheter biofilm models is evaluated.
Eradication of Microorganisms Embedding in Biofilm by a Dose-Dependent Urokinase-Based Catheter Lock Solution in Chronic Hemodialysis Patients
TLDR
Among HD patients, uPA-based ABL did not cause any obvious adverse affects, and it was more effective in treating coagulase-negative Staphylococci related CRBSI than other microorganisms.
Efficacy of Ethanol against Trichosporon asahii Biofilm in vitro.
TLDR
Results showed that ethanol effectively inhibited the main phases of T. asahii biofilm formation, revealing a new potential strategy to prevent and treat T.AsahiiBiofilm-related CR-BSIs.
Adjunctive management of central line-associated bloodstream infections with 70% ethanol-lock therapy.
TLDR
Adjunctive 70% ELT is an inexpensive, well-tolerated option for CVC salvage in patients with CLABSI and warrants further investigation.
Antimicrobial effects of a bioactive glass combined with fluoride or triclosan on Streptococcus mutans biofilm.
TLDR
The combinations of B AG with either NaF or TCS enhanced the inactivation effects of BAG (2 MBC) on S. mutans biofilm, and these findings should be further investigated clinically for the control of dental biofilms.
Antimicrobial lock therapy in central-line associated bloodstream infections: a systematic review
TLDR
The introduction of novel molecules has increased chances of catheter salvage with ALT in case of CLABSI, but further in vivo studies are needed.
Anti-biofilm and Anti-Virulence Efficacy of Celastrol Against Stenotrophomonas maltophilia
TLDR
The findings suggested that celastrol might be a promising bioactive agent for treatment of biofilm- and virulence-related infections caused by the multi-drug resistant S. maltophilia.
Stenotrophomonas maltophilia isolated from patients exposed to invasive devices in a university hospital in Argentina: molecular typing, susceptibility and detection of potential virulence factors
TLDR
This is the first epidemiological study of the clonal relatedness of S. maltophilia clinical isolates in Argentina and shows that the Galleria mellonella model is multifactorial, and further studies are needed to elucidate the role of each potential virulence factor.
Rescue therapy of difficult-to-treat indwelling central venous catheter-related bacteremias in cancer patients: a review for practical purposes
TLDR
The present review summarizes possible therapeutic options for device-related bacteremia in patients with indwelling central venous catheter to give an ‘easy to read’ text for everyday practice.

Activity of levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin on biofilms and planktonic cells of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia isolates from patients with device-associated infections.
TLDR
The results suggest that fluoroquinolones, particularly levofloxacin due to its better pharmacokinetic parameters, are candidates for synergy studies, and these agents could be used for the lock technique.
Comparison of various antimicrobial agents as catheter lock solutions: preference for ethanol in eradication of coagulase-negative staphylococcal biofilms.
TLDR
This is the first in vitro study to provide solid evidence to support the rationale of using ethanol at low concentrations for a short time as a CLS, instead of using conventional antibiotics at high concentration for a long period to treat catheter-related bloodstream infections.
Optimal Antimicrobial Catheter Lock Solution, Using Different Combinations of Minocycline, EDTA, and 25-Percent Ethanol, Rapidly Eradicates Organisms Embedded in Biofilm
TLDR
It is concluded that M-EDTA in 25% ethanol is highly effective at rapidly eradicating S. aureus and C. parapsilosis embedded in biofilm adhering to catheter segments.

TLDR
This in vitro study demonstrates the superior antimicrobial activity of ETOH 60% in contrast to TSC 46.7% in eradicating biofilm formed on a silicon catheter, and ethanol-based solution shows promise as a catheter lock solution.
Effectiveness of a 30% ethanol/4% trisodium citrate locking solution in preventing biofilm formation by organisms causing haemodialysis catheter-related infections.
TLDR
The 30% ethanol/4% trisodium citrate lock solution prevented the biofilm formation of all isolates of S. aureus, S. epidermidis, P. aeruginosa and E. coli in vitro.
Ethanol disinfection of plastic-adherent micro-organisms.
TLDR
Results suggest that in contrast to log phase organisms, which are killed by ethanol/water solutions in seconds, plastic-adherent organisms are more resistant to the bactericidal activity of ethanol.
Biofilm formation by Stenotrophomonas maltophilia isolates from device-associated nosocomial infections.
TLDR
One of the highest biofilm-producing isolates adhered to urethral catheters of different materials, and exhibited an increased resistance to oxidative stress, one of the common stresses encountered by bacteria during the infection process due to the immune response.

TLDR
ALT combined with systemic antibiotics seems to be effective for treating catheter-related bacteraemia, especially in Gram-negative and CoNS episodes.
