Presentation Type: Speech
Background and Aim: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic gram - negative bacillus commonly associated with wide range of diseases. In this study we aim to evaluate the antibacterial activity of liposomal meropenem against to clinical isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. P. aeruginosa strains were used to determine the MIC and MBC of free and liposomal meropenem. Also the effect of free and liposomes antibiotic to compare the minimum biofilm eradication concentration and inhibit ion of P. aeruginosa motility was assessed.
