ARMOR study shows multi-drug resistance continues to be a challenge

SEATTLE — Four-year results of the ARMOR study showed that a number of isolates are resistant to common ophthalmic antibiotics, and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and methicillin-resistant coagulase-negative staphylococci isolate resistance to multiple ophthalmic drugs remains high, according to a poster here. The Antibiotic Resistance Monitoring in Ocular Microorganisms (ARMOR) study to date has looked at 455 isolates from 25 clinical sites, according to a poster by Wolfgang Haas, PhD, and colleagues at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology meeting.
