Novel Antibiotic-loaded Point-of-care Implant Coating Inhibits Biofilm.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Orthopaedic biomaterials are susceptible to biofilm formation. A novel lipid-based material has been developed that may be loaded with antibiotics and applied as an implant coating at point of care. However, this material has not been evaluated for antibiotic elution, biofilm inhibition, or in vivo efficacy. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES (1) Do antibiotic… (More)
