In-vitro evaluation of the adhesion to polypropylene sutures of non-pigmented, rapidly growing mycobacteria



In-vitro evaluation of the adhesion to polypropylene sutures of non-pigmented, rapidly growing mycobacteria



Clinical Microbiology and Infection 13(9): 902-907



The ability of non-pigmented, rapidly growing mycobacteria (NPRGM) to attach to polypropylene sutures was evaluated using an in-vitro assay. Thirty clinical isolates and five culture collection strains of NPRGM, together with Staphylococcus epidermidis ATCC 35983, were tested. Mycobacterium fortuitum and Mycobacterium chelonae showed the highest attachment ability, which differed significantly from the results obtained with Mycobacterium peregrinum. According to these results, NPRGM are able to attach to polypropylene sutures, and the species implicated most frequently in human infection showed increased levels of attachment in comparison with the other mycobacteria studied.
