Webinar: The ARMOR study five-year surveillance results August 31, 2016 Watch as Penny Asbell, MD, talks about antibiotic resistance in a webinar titled: The ARMOR Study Five-Year Surveillance Results. How resistant biofilms affect keratitis July 11, 2016 Watch as Ben Wucher, researcher at University of Rochester Medical Center, summarizes his research titled, "Clinical keratitis isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa develop resistant biofilms." Clinical advice from the latest ARMOR study update June 20, 2016 In the most recent update from the ARMOR study, Penny Asbell, MD, FACS, MBA, explained that clinicians must choose their antibiotics carefully. Are intracameral antibiotics the answer for endophthalmitis? Postoperative endophthalmitis remains a potentially devastating complication of cataract surgery. However, a good visual outcome is possible if the infection is recognized early and treated appropriately, said Harry W. Flynn Jr, MD. Determining the proper intracameral moxifloxacin dosage May 23, 2016 Steve Arshinoff, MD, FRCSC, of the University of Toronto, outlines the proper dosage and administration technique for intracameral moxifloxacin during cataract surgery. What physicians need to know about bacterial resistance In vitro antibiotic resistance—defined as the ability for bacteria to exist and multiply despite a normally achievable serum level of drug that had been previously determined to successfully treat a clinical infection—is an increasing problem worldwide. Stopping postop infection April 15, 2015 By Lynda Charters Postoperative infections with ocular surgeries may be reduced substantially by effectively treating active ocular disease in advance before the patient enters the operating room. ARMOR surveillance data update shows increased levels of resistance July 15, 2014 By Nancy Groves The latest surveillance data on antibiotic resistance trends show increased levels of resistance among certain isolates, warranting ongoing, prospective, multicenter surveillance studies.
