Oral #6: Rose Godfrey – Antimicrobial Blue Light, Oregano Oil, and CZ-01179 Gel Manage Staphylococcus aureus Biofilms at the Skin-Implant Interface of Percutaneous Osseointegrated Prosthetics in an Ex Vivo Setup

Faculty mentor: Dustin Williams

Percutaneous osseointegrated prosthetics are becoming available for those with limb loss as an alternative to prosthetic socket technology.The percutaneous nature makes them susceptible to biofilm-related infection. We hypothesized that antimicrobial blue light (aBL) can manage biofilm burden and we explored the efficacy of oregano oil and CZ (anti-biofilm compound). Multi-day applications were tested against Staph aureus biofilms.
