Comparative susceptibility of hospital isolates of gram-negative bacteria to antiseptics and disinfectants

Abstract

The sensitivity of hospital isolates of Gram-negative bacteria to cationic antiseptics, mercuric chloride and two organomercury compounds has been measured. A comparison was made with laboratory strains of known sensitivity which acted as standards. All strains of Escherichia coli showed a uniformly high sensitivity to chlorhexidine diacetate; other organisms tended to be less sensitive to the biguanide. Quaternary ammonium compounds were less effective than chlorhexidine. Resistance to mercuric chloride was observed frequently, but there was little evidence of organomercurial resistance except in Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates.

Allergy & Infectious Diseases

Allergies result from the hyperreactivity of the immune system to some environmental substance and can be life-threatening. Infectious diseases are caused by organisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. They can be transmitted different ways, such as person-to-person. Here is the latest research on allergy and infectious diseases.

Antifungals (ASM)

An antifungal, also known as an antimycotic medication, is a pharmaceutical fungicide or fungistatic used to treat and prevent mycosis such as athlete's foot, ringworm, candidiasis, cryptococcal meningitis, and others. Discover the latest research on antifungals here.
