Central venous catheters (CVCs) are used in patient care for such purposes as the administration of medication, fluids, blood products and for functions such as hemodialysis and plasmapheresis. However, the use of CVCs can cause complications such as life-threatening bloodstream infections (BSI).
BSIs are caused by organisms from the skin's surface tracking down the catheter's outer surface. The organisms grow on the catheter surface (catheter colonization) which is followed by seeding into the bloodstream. BSIs can be difficult to treat and the mortality rate is as high as 35% in Intensive Care patients with a catheter-related BSI. It is estimated that up to 70,000 patients in the US die each year from catheter-related BSI.
MBI 226 is a new drug that, when applied to the skin surrounding the catheter insertion site, may prevent organisms on the skin from migrating down the catheter and entering the bloodstream and therefore decrease the incidence of catheter-related BSI in patients with CVCs.
