Preliminary assessment of photoactivated antimicrobial collagen on bioburden in a murine pressure ulcer model.


OBJECTIVE AND BACKGROUND DATA Overcoming bacterial antibiotic resistance requires alternative strategies. The ability of photoactivated collagen-embedded flavins (PCF) to reduce bioburden in infected pressure ulcers was investigated. DESIGN AND METHODS Two pressure ulcers were created on the dorsum of female BALB/C mice (n=40, 35 g) maintaining a 5 mm… (More)
