Abstract

A unique coating formulation is developed not only to protect skin from corrosive liquids and mechanical abrasion, but also to carry and release antimicrobial agents to inhibit fungal and bacterial growth. It is currently being investigated for use in incontinence as a skin barrier, for anti-immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients as an antifungal treatment, for operating room use as a surgical incise drape, and for application to synthetic materials, such as dental water lines and urinary catheter, to suppress fungal and bacterial growth.
