Effect of aminoglycosides (sub-MICs) on adherence of coagulase-negative Staphylococci to intraocular lens surface.


The authors evaluated the in vitro effects of subinhibitory concentrations (sub-MICs) of aminoglycosides (gentamicin, netilmicin and tobramycin) on the adherence of coagulase-negative staphylococcus to intraocular lens (PMMA, acrylic and heparin) surface. The five strains of coagulase-negative Staphylococcus epidermidis used (S. epidermidis IMe7, IMe11… (More)
