Examination of the antibacterial activities of some semi-synthetic chalcone-derivatives alone and in combination with polymyxin B. (2013)
Thesis
MEDU, E.O. 2013. Examination of the antibacterial activities of some semi-synthetic chalcone-derivatives alone and in combination with polymyxin B. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Bacterial resistance is an increasing challenge across the world, which means that there is an urgent need for the rational development of antibacterial compounds that have either novel or multiple mechanisms of action. This study demonstrated that t... Read More about Examination of the antibacterial activities of some semi-synthetic chalcone-derivatives alone and in combination with polymyxin B..

Antimicrobial wafers as a novel technology for infection control in chronic wounds. (2011)
Thesis
LABOVITIADI, O. 2011. Antimicrobial wafers as a novel technology for infection control in chronic wounds. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Bacterial contamination and persistent infection is a common cause of impaired wound healing. Generally, non-healing wounds display similar physiological features with regards to mixed bacterial flora, ischemia and production of exudate. The applicat...
