Hospital Medicine Specialty Spotlight

A layer of protection against hospital-acquired infections

A new type of antibacterial coating for intravascular catheters could drastically reduce catheter-related bloodstream infections in hospital settings. A team of biomedical engineers and infectious disease specialists at Brown University have developed a polyurethane coating using a drug called auranofin that effectively kills methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, prevents the formation of stubborn biofilms and keeps bacteria from developing a natural resistance. Although preliminary tests have revealed no harmful effects on human blood or liver cells, further testing will be required before the coating is used on patients.
