Furthermore in an evaluation study of Hypericum patulum leaf extract skin wound healing activity in rats compared with nitrofurazone
ointment it was documented that leaf extract ointments lead to more effective tissue regeneration than the antibacterial agent (Mukherjee 2000).
Several strategies have been attempted to control or prevent biofilm formation like making the catheter surface more hydrophilic with hydrogel coatings, use of antimicrobial ointments or lubricants on the catheter surface, coating or impregnation of catheters with antimicrobial agents like antibiotics nitrofurazone
, minocyclin and rifampicin, metal ions like silver etc [9, 10].

Limited success has also been seen with non-antibiotic remedies such as chlorohexidine, nitrofurazone
, PVP-I, mafenide and mupirocin.
Catheters have been engineered to be impregnated with nitrofurazone
or minocycline (urinary antiseptics) or with rifampin, a silver alloy with anti-infective activity.
The open wound was packed with gauze soaked with 10% povidone-iodine, rifamycin, and nitrofurazone
