Product Profile
In a clinical trial by the University Hospital Aachen an excellent MRSA eradication rate of approx. 80% was found in octenisan® Wash Lotion. Over a period of 26 months (January 2003 - March 2005) the MRSA skin status of all MRSA-positive patients was tested in the nasal atrium, on the forehead, in the axilla, the groin, in wounds and in the throat. The patients included in the trial were washed with octenisan® every day for five days (including their hair). The cleaning performance was checked based on a predetermined procedure with fresh skin swabs. Minor wounds were treated with octenisept®. MRSA was detected in skin screening of 105 patients out of 318 altogether (= 33%). Of these 105 patients it was possible to carry out procedures as per the trial protocol in the case of 45 patients (= 43%). MRSA was persistently eradicated in 35 out of 45 patients altogether (= 78%) over an observation period of 14 days.
