  • This study was undertaken to investigate the role of the intestinal flora and the effects of silver in the gastrointestinal tract upon colonization by the gram-negative bacteria of burn wounds treated with 0.5% silver nitrate. Bacteria cultured from burn wounds and feces of burned patients treated with 0.5% silver nitrate were compared. Sensitivity of wound and fecal bacteria to silver was measured and the concentration of silver which inhibits growth of bacteria was determined. Infection of… CONTINUE READING
