Mino-Wrap is a liquefying gel-based wrap containing minocycline and rifampin
for reducing tissue expander (TE) infections following breast reconstructive surgeries.
The Envelope elutes antimicrobial agents Minocycline and Rifampin
locally into the tissue for a minimum of seven days.
Bloomington, Ind.-based Cook Medical's Spectrum catheters include the antibiotics minocycline and rifampin
and meet the newly released 1A recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for reducing catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs) if maximal sterile barrier precautions haven't helped a facility reach its [infection prevention] goal.
PATIENT _________________________________________________ SPECIMEN TYPE ___________________________________________ DATE COLLECTED __________________________________________ PHYSICIAN _______________________________________________ Addendum to Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcal Sensitivity Testing Report This organism is sensitive to both minocycline and rifampin
. Oral combination therapy with these two antibiotics may be a useful alternative to vancomycin.
Catheters impregnated with minocycline and rifampin are commercially available.
Central venous catheters coated with minocycline and rifampin for the prevention of catheter-related colonization and bloodstream infection.
The TYRX Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope contains a combination of two antibacterial agents, minocycline and rifampin
, which have been shown to reduce medical device infection in multiple randomized control trials.
(19) found that catheters impregnated with minocycline and rifampin
were less likely to be colonized than those impregnated with chlorhexidine and silver sulfadiazine.
The PICC's combination of minocycline and rifampin
has proven to be an effective mixture so far in reducing the liklihood of CRBSIs while simultaneously avoiding antibiotic resistance.
