Abstract

Purpose. Taurolidine is a broad spectrum, non-antibiotic antimicrobial agent, not previously tested against infectious endophthalmitis. The efficacy of intravitreal taurolidine in the treatment of experimental Staphylococcus epidermidis endoplithalmitis was evaluated and compared with vancomycin in a rabbit model.
