Experimental: omiganan 1% gel
Omiganan has a rapid bactericidal and fungicidal effect which is under development for the prevention of infections arising from short-term central venous catheters, as well as for the prevention of surgical wound infections in contaminated wounds.
Drug: omiganan 1% gel
Omiganan 1% gel will be applied to 6 sites on the chest and/or abdomen.Swab cultures will be obtained at specified timepoints over a period of 3 days (Part1) or 7 days (Part 2).
In addition, subjects in Part 2 will have omiganan 1% gel applied to one intravenous (IV) catheter site.
|Active Comparator: chlorhexidine 2%||
Drug: chlorhexidine 2% solution
Part 1- chlorhexidine 2% solution will be applied to 6 sites on the chest and/or abdomen. All application sites will be covered with semi-transparent dressings.Swab cultures will be obtained at specific timepoints over a period of 3 days.
Part 2: Subjects in Part 2 will have chlorhexidine 2% solution applied to one intravenous (IV) catheter site only.
The study is comprised of 2 parts with approximately 20 subjects participating in each part.
Subjects eligible for Part 1 will have omiganan 1 % gel applied to 6 sites across the chest and/or abdomen and chlorhexidine 2% solution will be applied to 6 matching sites on the contralateral side.
Subjects eligible for Part 2 will each have omiganan 1% gel applied to 6 sites across the upper chest or abdomen.In addition,subjects in Part 2 will have 2 peripheral catheters inserted, one in each arm.One catheter insertion site will be treated with omiganan 1% gel (following treatment with isopropyl alcohol) and the other site will be treated with chlorhexidine 2%/isopropyl alcohol.
