Other names for this medication:

Similar Products:
fusidic acid, Fluroquinolones, Cotrimoxazole, Minocycline


Also known as:  Mupirocin.


Bactroban is an antibiotic ointment that is effective in treating impetigo, and other skin infections that bacteria causes. It is important to note that this ointment will not work on fungal infections or infections caused by viruses.

Bactroban consists of 2 medications: sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. The first inhibits synthesis of dihydrofolic acid (the substance important for human and bacterial metabolism) while the last blocks next stage of its biochemical cycle: formation of tetrahydrofolic acid which occurs only in microorganisms.

This medication is effective against streptococci, staphylococci, pneumococci, bacillus dysentery, typhoid fever, E. coli, Proteus, and ineffective against Mycobacterium tuberculosis, spirochetes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Bactrim is applied in treatment of pneumonia and other diseases of respiratory, gastrointestinal systems, urogenital systems caused by bacterial infections which develop after surgery and others.

Bactroban is an antibacterial. It works by stopping the production of essential proteins needed by the bacteria to survive.

Bactroban is also known as Mupirocin, Centany.

Generic name of Bactroban is Mupirocin.

Mupirocin was used in haemodialysis patients in an attempt to eradicate nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus and to prevent infection caused by this microorganism. The effectiveness of calcium mupirocin as a 2% nasal ointment OB2 (16 patients for 104 patient-months) was compared to that of placebo (18 patients for 147 patient-months) in a double-blind study. Mupirocin or placebo were applied in both anterior nares thrice daily for 2 weeks and subsequently three times weekly for a total of 9 months. During therapy, S. aureus was recovered from only 6% of the nasal cultures in the mupirocin group compared to 58% in the placebo group (P less than or equal to 0.01). Only one S. aureus infection was documented in the mupirocin group compared to six in the placebo group (P less than or equal to 0.05). The S. aureus strain causing the single infection in the mupirocin group was of a different phage type to that of the original nasal strain. In contrast, at least four of the six strains causing infection in the placebo group were of similar phage type to the original nasal strain. All S. aureus isolates remained mupirocin sensitive (MIC less than or equal to 1 mg/l). In conclusion, mupirocin nasal ointment was effective in eradicating nasal carriage of S. aureus and in preventing S. aureus infections in patients on haemodialysis.

Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL)-producing Staphylococcus aureus results in leukocyte destruction and tissue necrosis (Pediatric Dermatology 2007;24:401). It can be associated with a spectrum of clinical manifestations that range from localized staphylococcal skin infections to sometimes severe necrotizing pneumonia (Clin Infect Dis 1999;29:1128). We report a case of four siblings, three brothers whose atopic dermatitis was complicated by cutaneous lesions and furunculosis, while their 21-month-old sister had a fatal PVL positive staphylococcal pneumonia.

The long-term efficacy (55 months) of eradication of nasal carriage of meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) by mupirocin was assessed for MRSA infections in a gastroenterology unit receiving patients for long hospital stays. In total, 2242 patients were included in the study; 92% had been hospitalized in another hospital before admission to the study department, 64% had chronic liver diseases (LD), 25% had miscellaneous medical conditions and 11% were admitted following gastroenterological surgery. Three consecutive periods were considered in the analysis. Nasal carriage at admission was similar in all three periods (10.9 vs 7.5 vs 8.6% in Periods 1, 2 and 3, respectively), while acquired nasal carriage decreased in the whole population (14.3 vs 16.2 vs 10.2% in Periods 1, 2 and 3, respectively, P=0.006) and in LD patients (15.8 vs 18.7 vs 11.9% in Periods 1, 2 and 3, respectively, P=0.018). The incidence of MRSA infections (N per total number of hospitalization-days) was 1.41 per 1000 in the year before initiation of eradication, 1.40 in Period 1, 0.74 in Period 2 and 0.59 in Period 3 (P=0.022). The incidence of MRSA infections among patients was 7.0% in Period 1, 3.7% in Period 2 and 3.1% in Period 3 in LD patients (P=0.0062). The corresponding figures were 5.5, 3.0 and 2.4% for the whole population (P=0.0024). The mortality caused by MRSA was 0.31, 0.19 and 0.13% (P=0.035) in Periods 1, 2 and 3, respectively. The numbers of resistant strains among those acquired during hospitalization were 12 in Period 1, four in Period 2 and six in Period 3. Long-term intranasal mupirocin treatment in MRSA carrier patients with long hospital stay is associated with a decrease in acquired carriage and MRSA infections, while resistance of the strains to mupirocin does not increase provided that colonized patients are only treated once.

S. aureus nasal carriage was prospectively sought in 70 consecutive liver transplant candidates. Mupirocin two times per day for 5 days was administered to the carriers. Follow-up nasal cultures to document decolonization were performed 5 days after the final application of mupirocin. The primary endpoint was the development of S. aureus infections.

The management of recurrent furunculosis is difficult, and often disappointing. We present the case of a 23-year-old female patient suffering from recurrent furunculosis. The furunculosis persisted after treatment with mupirocin nasal ointment, chlorhexidine soap and instructions for washing clothes, towels and bed sheets for a period of 7 days. Treatment with low-dose clindamycin for three months ultimately proved successful. We propose a structural approach for recurrent furunculosis in which extensive history-taking is followed by appropriate tests. Before prescribing an oral antibiotic (preferably low-dose clindamycin or a macrolide for 3 months), the patient should use an antimicrobial nasal ointment and soap and follow hygienic instructions as mentioned above. Members of the household who also have signs of the infection should be treated. Hygienic education is an essential component of treatment. We believe that this approach will lead to a treatment that is more effective and efficient.

Structural damage to polyurethane PD (peritoneal dialysis) catheters in patients using mupirocin ointment is widely appreciated, but damage to silicon rubber PD catheters is less well described. Ten catheters (6.6%) out of 152 were found to have structural alterations such as opacification, ballooning, thinning, and rupture. The duration of PD in these 10 patients ranged from 23 months to 80 months (mean duration 51.1 months). The frequency of mupirocin application varied from daily (2 cases) to 2-3 times per week (7 cases). In eight catheters opacification occurred at the exit site whereas one catheter showed opacification midway between the exit site and the titanium adaptor. One catheter showed opacification, ballooning, and thinning at the exit site ruptured in the form of two slit-like openings. In conclusion, various structural changes such as opacification, ballooning or thinning were seen in 6.6% of silicon rubber PD catheters in patients using mupirocin at the exit site. Although the mechanism remains elusive, mupirocin or the antiseptic solution alone or in combination may be contributory. We believe that this is an under-reported complication and encourage other health care givers to incorporate a search for such changes during clinic visits.

A total of 1150 patients admitted to the hospital were found to be infected or colonized with MRSA. Of the 1150 patients, 268 were prescribed decolonization treatment. 104 out of 268 patients (39 %) were successfully decolonized. There was no significant success after two decolonization failures. MRSA infection rate among the successes and failures were 0.0 and 4.3 %, respectively [P = 0.04].

Two hospital staff, women aged 20 and 22 years, were inadvertently found to be positive for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Both had been in a hospital outside of the Netherlands, but due to the long period of time that had elapsed since then, they did not fall under the standard protocol for MRSA screening. After the usual wash procedure with chlorhexidine and mupirocin nasal ointment treatment, they remained positive for MRSA in the throat culture. Both patients still had their pharyngeal tonsils and were suffering from throat complaints. After systemic treatment with two antibiotics, they both became MRSA-free. Throat carriership of MRSA might be a reason why MRSA eradication fails in the case of apparently healthy healthcare workers. The addition of a throat culture to the screening of healthcare workers would therefore be useful.

Topical treatment of burn wounds is essential as reduced blood supply in the burned tissues restricts the effect of systemic antibiotics. On the burn surface, microorganisms exist within a complex structure termed a biofilm, which enhances bacterial resistance to antimicrobial agents significantly. Since bacteria differ in their ability to develop biofilms, the susceptibility of these biofilms to topically applied antibiotics varies, making it essential to identify which topical antibiotics efficiently disrupt or prevent biofilms produced by these pathogens. Yet, a simple in vitro assay to compare the susceptibility of biofilms produced by burn wound isolates to different topical antibiotics has not been reported.

This study initially involved the isolation of a number of bifidobacteria from either the lumen or the epithelium of a porcine cecum. A total of 160 isolates were selected at random on MRS plates containing cysteine hydrochloride (0.5 g/liter) and mupirocin (50 mg/liter). All were identified as bifidobacteria based on fructose-6-phosphate phosphoketolase activity. Following genomic digestion with the restriction enzyme XbaI and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), the isolates produced 15 distinct macro-restriction patterns. Several of the PFGE patterns differed by only 1, 2, or 3 DNA fragments and were grouped as related patterns into seven PFGE types, termed A through G. The related patterns appeared to show genomic plasticity within the isolates arising from chromosomal mutations or possibly horizontal transfer of plasmids. The relative frequency of each PFGE type was maintained within each cecal sample, with PFGE type E representing approximately 50% of the isolates. Randomly amplified polymorphic DNA PCR, cell morphology, whole-cell protein profiling, 16S ribosomal DNA sequencing, and DNA-DNA hybridization were used to determine if the seven apparently unrelated PFGE types represented genetically distinct isolates. Four groups were identified: PFGE types A, C/D/G, B/E, and F, and these appeared to represent Bifidobacterium minimum, Bifidobacterium pseudolongum subsp. pseudolongum, and Bifidobacterium pseudolongum subsp. globosum and two new species, respectively. The data demonstrate the presence of considerable genomic diversity within a relatively simple bifidobacteria population, consisting of 15 distinct strains representing four groups, which was maintained throughout the porcine cecal contents and epithelial layer.

The aim of the trial was to study the efficacy and safety of the ointment containing mupirocin 2% and betamethasone dipropionate 0.05% in the treatment of infected dermatoses. Patients having either primary infection complicated by dermatoses or dermatoses infected secondarily were included in their study. From the analysis of 59 patients, it was noted that this ointment was found to be safe and very effective by dermatologist in the treatment of infected dermatoses in 94.9% of the patients. Similarly 89.8% of the patients reported more than 70% improvement in their symptoms after 7 days of treatment. No adverse effects were reported during the treatment period by any of the patients except worsening of skin lesions by one patient.

The biological properties of SB 205952, a nitrofuryl oxazole derivative of monic acid, differ from those of the closely related antibacterial agent mupirocin. Compared with mupirocin, SB 205952 has increased antimicrobial potency, an extended spectrum including mupirocin-resistant staphylococci, and rapid bactericidal activity. SB 205952, like mupirocin, is a potent inhibitor of bacterial isoleucyl-tRNA synthetase (IRS) in mupirocin-susceptible organisms but does not inhibit IRS from mupirocin-resistant staphylococci, indicating that SB 205952 has more than one mechanism of action. SB 205952 rapidly inhibits protein, RNA, and DNA syntheses in mupirocin-susceptible and mupirocin-resistant staphylococci. In each case, the effect on RNA synthesis is relaxed by treatment with chloramphenicol, indicating that inhibition of RNA synthesis is probably a secondary consequence of stringent control. It is proposed that SB 205952 possesses one or more mechanisms of action in addition to IRS inhibition, probably mediated by its nitrofuryl component.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has emerged as an important pathogen in community-acquired and nosocomial infections. The unique bactericidal action of mupirocin makes it one of the few antibiotics still effective against MRSA. The purpose of this study was to investigate the mupirocin resistance in MRSA strains isolated from wound infections of in- and out-patients of two distinct hospitals located in Ankara and Istanbul. A total of 143 MRSA strains were included in the study. Mupirocin resistance was investigated by Kirby-Bauer disk diffusion method and the results were confirmed by determination of the MIC values by E-test strips. Among 143 MRSA isolates, mupirocin resistance was detected by none of the methods, and overall mupirocin sensitivity was detected as 100 percent. The majority of mupirocin resistant MRSA is isolated from wound infections. The aetiology mostly depends on the increased topical use of the agent. The method used in the detection Zofran Im Dose of mupirocin resistance and interpretation of the results are important parameters in the determination of mupirocin resistance in MRSA strains. Since there was no resistant strain among 143 clinical isolates obtained from two different hospitals, it was concluded that, mupirocin resistance is not an important problem in these regions currently, and mupirocin may be safely used in treating wound infections.

The optimal method of reducing the risk of surgical site infection (SSI) after dermatologic surgery is unclear. Empiric, preoperative antibiotic use is common practice but lacks supporting evidence for its efficacy in preventing SSI. Risk stratification for patients at high risk of postoperative SSI based on a nasal swab is a viable strategy when coupled with topical decolonization for positive carriers. We compared the rates of infection in patients undergoing Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) with nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus who received oral antibiotics or topical decolonization.

Catheter-related infections remain a serious problem for patients on peritoneal dialysis. Such infections can be reduced by careful patient selection and training, by the use of the best connection technology and screening and treating nasal carriage. To date, treatment is less than optimal and therefore, the primary goal should be prevention of catheter-related infections. Prevention is based on improving catheter design and implantation technique, while providing careful exit-site care. Regardless of how it is implemented, we must aggressively pursue the prevention of catheter-related infections by eradicating S. aureus exit-site carriage in PD patients. Based on its effectiveness in adult PD patients, its low rate of adverse effects, and its reasonable cost-effectiveness, application of mupirocin ointment at the exit-site is the current method of choice for preventing PD catheter infections caused by S. aureus. In addition to reducing S. aureus exit-site infections, mupirocin seems to reduce the rates of staphylococcal peritonitis and PD catheter loss. Whether the ointment should be applied in the nares, to the exit-site or both, and whether it should be used only in staphylococcal nasal carriers or all PD patients requires further study.

Antimicrobials effective against meticillin-resistant staphylococci are limited. Mupirocin is a topical antimicrobial used to treat bacterial skin infections. Novobiocin is an oral antimicrobial approved for treatment of staphylococcal upper respiratory infections in dogs. This study reports the in vitro activity of mupirocin and novobiocin on meticillin-susceptible (MSS) and resistant staphylococci (MRS) from healthy dogs and dogs with superficial pyoderma. Staphylococci were isolated from skin swabs at four sites on healthy dogs and from lesions on dogs with superficial pyoderma. Staphylococci were identified by morphology and by catalase and coagulase testing. Speciation and susceptibility testing were performed by the Dade Microscan (W. Sacramento, CA, USA). Meticillin resistance was confirmed by an oxacillin screen plate. Novobiocin and mupirocin susceptibilities were tested by disc diffusion. Staphylococci were cultured from 61 healthy dogs (17 MRS and 44 MSS) and 30 dogs with pyoderma (15 MRS and 15 MSS), with higher proportions of MRS isolates in dogs with pyoderma (P=0.038; χ(2) test). For mupirocin, 79.5% (35 of 44) MSS and 82.3% (14 of 17) MRS isolates from healthy dogs, and 100% (15 of 15) MSS and 86.6% (13 of 15) MRS isolates from dogs with pyoderma were susceptible (MSS, P=0.094; MRS, P=1.0; Fisher's exact test). For novobiocin, 95.4% (42 of 44) MSS and 52.9% (nine of 17) MRS isolates from healthy dogs and 93.3% (14 of 15) MSS and 80% (12 of 15) MRS isolates from dogs with pyoderma were susceptible (MSS, P=1.0; MRS, P=0.148; Fisher's exact test).

Nutrient shiftdown of Staph. aureus, HPLC of nucleotides and Western blotting of cell-free extracts. ppGpp rapidly accumulated when cells were deprived of isoleucine following addition of mupirocin, or after carbon deprivation. In contrast, total amino acid starvation led to delayed production of ppGp, which suggests that Staph. aureus exhibits a unique response to total amino acid deprivation compared with other eubacteria. Intracellular ppGp was observed at high levels under all starvation conditions, which suggests that this nucleotide is linked to nutrient limitation and may therefore be involved in regulating the stringent response in Staph. aureus. pppGpp was not observed under any nutrient-limiting condition. Western blot analysis of whole-cell extracts from Staph. aureus 8325-4, showed that antibodies to RelA and SpoT cross-reacted under conditions that detected these proteins in Escherichia coli.

REP8839 is a novel methionyl-tRNA synthetase (MetS) inhibitor with potent antibacterial activity against clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, and other clinically important gram-positive bacteria but little activity against gram-negative bacteria. All isolates of S. aureus, including strains resistant to methicillin, mupirocin, vancomycin, and linezolid were susceptible to REP8839 at concentrations of < or =0.5 microg/ml. REP8839 was also active against Staphylococcus epidermidis, including multiply resistant strains (MIC, < or =0.25 microg/ml). All S. pyogenes isolates were susceptible to REP8839 at concentrations of < or =0.25 microg/ml, suggesting that MetS2, a second enzyme previously identified in Streptococcus pneumoniae, was not present in this organism. REP8839 was highly bound to the protein of human serum, and activity was not greatly influenced by inoculum size but was affected by pH, exhibiting optimal antibacterial activity in a neutral medium rather than a weak acidic medium. Like mupirocin, REP8839 exhibited bacteriostatic activity against key pathogens. The emergence of mupirocin resistance in S. aureus highlights the need for a new topical antibiotic with the ability to inhibit high-level mupirocin-resistant strains and other emerging phenotypes, such as vancomycin-resistant and community-acquired methicillin-resistant isolates.

Ulcer infection status at baseline and duration of follow-up varied across RCTs. Five RCTs reported eight comparisons of systemic antibiotics, and the remainder evaluated topical preparations: cadexomer iodine (11 RCTs reporting 12 comparisons); povidone-iodine (six RCTs reporting seven comparisons); peroxide-based preparations (four RCTs reporting four comparisons); honey-based preparations (two RCTs reporting two comparisons); silver-based preparations (12 RCTs reporting 13 comparisons); other topical antibiotics (three RCTs reporting five comparisons); and other topical antiseptics (two RCTs reporting two comparisons). Few RCTs provided a reliable estimate of time to healing; most reported the proportion of participants with complete healing during the trial period. Systemic antibioticsMore participants were healed when they were prescribed levamisole (normally used to treat roundworm infection) compared with placebo: risk ratio (RR) 1.31 (95% CI 1.06 to 1.62). No between-group differences were detected in terms of complete healing for other comparisons: antibiotics given according to antibiogram versus usual care; ciprofloxacin versus standard care/placebo; trimethoprim versus placebo; ciprofloxacin versus trimethoprim; and amoxicillin versus topical povidone-iodine. Topical antibiotics and antisepticsCadexomer iodine: more participants were healed when given cadexomer iodine compared with standard care. The pooled estimate from four RCTs for complete healing at four to 12 weeks was RR 2.17 (95% CI 1.30 to 3.60). No between-group differences in complete healing were detected when cadexomer iodine was compared with the following: hydrocolloid dressing; paraffin gauze dressing; dextranomer; and silver-impregnated dressings.Povidone iodine: no between-group differences in complete healing were detected when povidone-iodine was compared with the following: hydrocolloid; moist or foam dressings according to wound status; and growth factor. Time to healing estimates for povidone-iodine versus dextranomer, and for povidone-iodine versus hydrocolloid, were likely to be unreliable.Peroxide-based preparations: four RCTs reported findings in favour of peroxide-based preparations when compared with usual care for surrogate healing outcomes (change in ulcer area). There was no report of complete healing.Honey-based preparations: no between-group difference in time to healing or complete healing was detected for honey-based products when compared with usual care.Silver-based preparations: no between-group differences in complete healing were detected when 1% silver sulphadiazine ointment was compared with standard care/placebo and tripeptide copper complex; or when different brands of silver-impregnated dressings were compared; or when silver-impregnated dressings were compared with non-antimicrobial dressings.Other topical antibiotics: data from one RCT suggested that more participants healed at four weeks when treated with an enzymatic cleanser (a non-antibiotic preparation) compared with a chloramphenicol-containing ointment (additional active ingredients also included in the ointment): RR 0.13 (95% CI 0.02 to 0.99). No between-group differences in complete healing were detected for framycetin sulphate ointment versus enzymatic cleanser; chloramphenicol ointment versus framycetin sulphate ointment; mupirocin ointment versus vehicle; and topical antibiotics given according to antibiogram versus an herbal ointment.Other topical antiseptics: data from one RCT suggested that more participants receiving an antiseptic ointment (ethacridine lactate) had responsive ulcers (defined as > 20% reduction in area) at four weeks when compared with placebo: RR 1.45 (95% CI 1.21 to 1.73). Complete healing was not reported. No between-group difference was detected between chlorhexidine solution and usual care.

2% mupirocin ointment applied intra-nasally for 5 days was assessed for elimination of nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus in 31 staff members in a children's hospital. Three volunteers failed to complete the trial because of side effects, i.e. buccal reddening and swelling, and unpleasant taste. During treatment staphylococcal nasal carriage was not found in any case; of the 24 post-treatment nasal swabs taken 4 days after treatment 22 were still negative. Re-colonization with S. aureus of different phage types occurred in the remaining two cases.

The prevalence of nasal carriage for staphylococcus aureus was 53 % (41 % MSSA, 12 % MRSA). Compared with patients showing no colonization or with MSSA carriers, the 16 patients with nasal carriage for MRSA were older and more likely to have acquired the bacteria while hospitalised. Genotyping of MRSA isolates revealed different strains in patients and care-providers. Mupirocin eliminated MRSA in all patients, none of these patients experienced an infection caused by staphylococcus aureus, confirming the known value of MRSA elimination from other studies.

Although there is extensive literature on the control of MRSA, when that concerning epidemics is excluded, only a limited amount remains regarding the control of endemic MRSA. Several guidelines have been recently published recommending stringent control measures, which are often suggested based on their success in controlling MRSA outbreaks in hospitals with few MRSA or in containing MRSA cases introduced into a hospital with no MRSA. In these settings, multiple measures are usually introduced with apparently successful results. However, results may not be generalizable to other settings and we do not know the minimum effective measures required for MRSA containment. This paper aims critically to review the literature to determine whether evidence exists for the value of the infection control measures that are widely recommended in the endemic setting. Much of this literature is based on observational studies, with few randomized, controlled trials having been conducted. More well-designed studies are required before many of the principles on which we build infection control programmes can be regarded as evidence based.
