Microbial-binding Woundcare A Strategy to Lift Bioburden

Microbial-binding Woundcare A Strategy to Lift Bioburden

Wounds can be a source of infection by allowing unrestricted entry of microorganisms into the body, including antimicrobial-resistant bacteria. The use of wound dressings that irreversibly bind and remove microbes using their natural hydrophobic properties minimises cell destruction and the resulting release of damaging endotoxins and offers a novel approach that supports antimicrobial stewardship strategies.
