  1. The sensitivity to chlorhexidine and cetyl pyridinium chloride of staphylococci on the hands of the dental students and theatre staff exposed to these disinfectants.

    Article - En anglais

    The aim of this investigation was to study the possible emergence of resistant isolates of the genus Staphylococcus on the hands of dental personnel who use « Hibiscrub » (chlorhexidine-detergent preparation) and cetyl pyridinium-coated gloves.

    Resistance was determined by a rate-of-kill technique.

    In four dental student groups (first, second, third and fourth years) no microorganisms survived 30 min exposure to cetyl pyridinium chloride (CPC) or to chlorhexidine diacetate (CDR).

    In a theatre staff group, no microorganisms survived 30s exposure to CPC; and only one of 23 isolates survived 30 min exposure to CDR, but was killed after 60 min exposure.
