Efficacy of topical silver against fungal burn wound pathogens

, : Efficacy of topical silver against fungal burn wound pathogens. American Journal of Infection Control 27(4): 344-350

The in vitro fungicidal efficacy of a variety of different topical agents was examined. By placing fungal inocula in contact with mafenide acetate, silver nitrate, silver sulfadiazine and a nanocrystalline silver-coated dressing, the kill kinetics of these topical agents against a spectrum of common burn wound fungal pathogens (Candida albicans, C. glabrata C. tropicalis, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Mucor sp.) was determined.

A comparison of the primary structures among psychrophilic, mesophilic, and thermophilic subtilases revealed that the turn between the β8 and β9 strands (β8-β9 turn, BPN' numbering) of psychrophilic subtilases are more flexible than those...

The influence of the liquid fraction (prehydrolysate) generated during steam-explosion pretreatment (210 degrees C, 15 min) of barley straw on the enzymatic hydrolysis was determined. Prehydrolysate was analyzed for degradation compounds and sugar...

The study showed the disruption of disulphide bonds in E protein of tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBE) to lead to the loss of antigenicity infectivity, hemagglutinating and protective activities. The loss of infectivity under the effect of a thio...
