Purpose: We evaluate the in vitro antibacterial activity of silver-copolymerized barrel cases compared to nonsilver barrel cases in combination with a multipurpose disinfecting solution (MPDS). Methods: The ability of silver and nonsilver cases to reduce the number of adherent Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria was assessed. Additionally, the efficacy of silver cases along with MPDS was investigated in the presence of organic soil and contact lenses. Contact lens cases were challenged with...

Biofilm has become a major topic of interest in medical, food, industrial, and environmental bacteriology. To be relevant, investigation of biofilm behavior requires effective and reliable techniques. We present herein a simple and robust method, adapted from the microplate technique, in which steam is used as a soft washing method to preserve biofilm integrity and to improve reproducibility of biofilm quantification. The kinetics of steam washing indicated that the method is adapted to remove b...

Contact lens-acquired bacterial infections are a serious problem. Of the reported cases, inadequate cleaning of the lens case was the most common cause of lens contamination. Organoselenium has been shown to inhibit bacterial attachment to different polymer materials. This study evaluates the ability of an organoselenium monomer, incorporated into the polymer of a polypropylene contact lens case coupon, to block the formation of biofilms in a lens case.The bacteria tested were Pseudomonas aerugi...

: Acanthamoeba keratitis has been increasing in recent years. Main risk factors are contact lens wear and their cleaning solutions. Most contact lens wearers use multipurpose disinfecting solutions (MPDS) for cleansing and disinfecting microorganisms because of its convenience. We determined amoebicidal effects of MPDS made in Korea and their cytotoxicity on human corneal epithelium cells. Fifteen commercial MPDS (A to O) were tested for their amoebicidal effects on Acanthamoeba castellanii trop...

Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been used as antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammtory, and antiangiogenic due to its unique properties such as physical, chemical, and biological properties. The present study was aimed to investigate antibacterial and anti-biofilm activities of silver nanoparticles alone and in combination with conventional antibiotics against various human pathogenic bacteria. Here, we show that a simple, reliable, cost effective and green method for the synthesi...
