3%) isolates showed resistance to gentamycin
and piperacillin, respectively.
While One mg of standard Gentamycin
(1:10 dilutions) was tested against the bacterial test strains, one mg of standard caspofungin (1:10 dilutions) was tested against the fungal test strains.
These results (table 1 and Figure 6 a & b) clearly indicate that the GEN wound dressing material is capable of delivering gentamycin
at the required concentration over a minimum period of 48 hours and the gentamycin
is capable of penetrating the depth of the agar medium and destroying both gram negative Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853 and (B) Gram positive Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923 through out its depth.

In preterm neonates gentamycin
given for suspected infection caused loss of microalbumin in urine, and loss of sodium and calcium (16).
In another small study, successful eradication of MRSA was achieved using a combination of oral trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole plus topical gentamycin
sulfate or polymyxin B sulfate-neomycin sulfate-hydrocortisone (Cortisporin) in 6 children (5 with prior tympanostomy tube placement and one with perforation of the tympanic membrane) who had failed either oral antibiotics or fluoroquinolone ear drops alone (Arch.
Antimicrobial drugs used in this study were ampicillin, streptomycin, tetracycline, kanamycin, nalidixic acid, gentamycin
, sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim, trimethoprim, chloramphenicol, cefotaxim, and ciprofloxacin.
Each isolate was screened to determine antibiotic resistance to the following: tetracycline, chlorotetracycline, penicillin G, ampicillin, cephalothin, streptomycin, gentamycin
, ciprofloxacin, sulfathiazole and cbloramphenicol.

Several days after completing a 5-day course of gentamycin
ophthalmic solution, Kenny's right eye began to swell until swollen shut.
