Abstract:
The reduction of bacteria on the skin results in prophylactic and therapeutic benefits by reducing the occurrence of skin infections. Currently, chlorhexidine digluconate, a conventional topical antiseptic, permeates the skin poorly leaving viable opportunistic pathogens below the superficial layers of the stratum corneum. The aim of this study was to use polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimers to enhance the topical delivery of chlorhexidine digluconate to improve its antimicrobial efficacy.
