Enhanced Biofilm Eradication and Reduced Cytotoxicity of a Novel Polygalacturonic and Caprylic Acid Wound Ointment Compared with Common Antiseptic Ointments

Figure 1

Eradication of biofilms from representative infectious pathogens Candida albicans, multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) by 1% polygalacturonic acid+0.4% caprylic acid (PG+CAP) wound ointment compared with commercially used ointments after 2 hours of exposure. Nonantimicrobial ointment base and nontreated disks were used as controls. Data are presented as the median recovered viable colonies; bars indicate the range.
