Vancomycin-Eluting Niosomes: A New Approach to the Inhibition of Staphylococcal Biofilm on Abiotic Surfaces

A new vancomycin (VCM)-eluting mixed bilayer niosome formulation was evaluated for the control of staphylococcal colonization and biofilm formation on abiotic surfaces, a niosome application not explored to date. Cosurfactant niosomes were prepared using a Span 60/Tween 40/cholesterol blend (1: 1: 2). Tween 40, a polyethoxylated amphiphile, was included to… CONTINUE READING
