ABSTRACT:
The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy of intravenous nutrient( soluvit , vitalipid , aminoven infant , lipovenos) and bisolvon commonly used in neonatal intensive care units against biofilm cells of staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis , Pseudomonas aerguinosa and klebseilla pneumonia as they are the most commonly isolated organisms and are biofilm producers .Also , the synergetic acticity of soluvit , heparin , bisolvon with antibiotics and its effect on minimum biofilm eradication concentration(MBEC) was tested. Intravenous nutrient and bromohexine are widely used in newborns . Numbers of viable cell count released from biofilm after treatment with intravenous nutrient and bromohexine were counted to compare the efficacy . The percentage of reduction in biofilm regrowth in case of using soluvit was 43-51% and 36-42 % for Gram positive and Gram negative respectively , on adding the vitalipid the percentage was 45-50 %and 37-41% for Gram positive and Gram negative respectively. While , in case of using bisolvon the percentage was 46-52% and 47-48% for Gram positive and Gram negative respectively. Adding lipovenos had a reduction percentage of 48-52% and 48-49% for Gram positive and Gram negative respectively. While , adding aminoven infant the percentage was 10-15% and 9-11% for Gram positive and Gram negative respectively. Adding soluvit , heparin and bisolvon to antibiotics had synergic effect . souvit with ciprofloxacin has 8-16 times decrease than minimum biofilm eradication concentration (MBEC) for ciprofloxacin alone . While, by adding soluvit to vancomycin the MBEC reduced by 16 times than MBEC of vancomycin alone . In case of combination soluvit with cefotaxime , amikacin and gentamycin the reduction in MBEC was 16 , 8 and 6-32 times respectively . The synergetic effect of adding heparin to ciprofloxacin , vancomycin , cefotaxime , amikacin and gentamicin was 2 times reduction with all except in case of gram negative the range of reduction was 0-2 with both gentamycin and ciprofloxacin. Bisolvon exihited synergetic effect with ciprofloxacin , vancomycin , cefotaxime , amikacin and gentamicin by 16 , 32 , 32 ,8 , 32-64 and 32 times decrease in MBEC respectively.
