Xibornol is known since the 70s and a xibornol-based formulation is commercialized as spray suspension for the antisepsis of the oral cavity and as adjuvant in pharyngeal infections caused by Gram-positive microorganisms. Herein, we evaluated the antimicrobial activity of xibornol and the xibornol-based formulation against common pathogens of the upper and lower respiratory tract.Our results indicate that xibornol alone and the xibornol-based formulation have strong antibacterial action against Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphyloccus aureus, as well as against the two emerging pathogens Actinomyces israelii and Corynebacterium ulcerans. These findings highlight the antimicrobial potential of these drugs in the topical control of pathogenic Gram-positive bacteria of the respiratory tract.

Abstract

Xibornol is known since the 70s and a xibornol-based formulation is commercialized as spray suspension for the antisepsis of the oral cavity and as adjuvant in pharyngeal infections caused by Gram-positive microorganisms. Herein, we evaluated the antimicrobial activity of xibornol and the xibornol-based formulation against common pathogens of the upper and lower respiratory tract.Our results indicate that xibornol alone and the xibornol-based formulation have strong antibacterial action against Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphyloccus aureus, as well as against the two emerging pathogens Actinomyces israelii and Corynebacterium ulcerans. These findings highlight the antimicrobial potential of these drugs in the topical control of pathogenic Gram-positive bacteria of the respiratory tract.
