Susceptibility of Pseudomonas and Staphylococcus wound isolates to topical antimicrobial agents: a 10-year review and clinical evaluation.

A 10-year review of Ps. aeruginosa and Staph. aureus susceptibility to various topical agents is presented. Susceptibility testing was performed using the agar well diffusion (AWD) method. A reduction in microbial growth to numbers less than 10(5) per gram of tissue in the wound, measured by quantitative biopsy, was compared with predicted susceptibility… CONTINUE READING
