Infected chronic wounds heal slowly, exhibiting prolonged inflammation, biofilm formation, bacterial resistance, high exudate and ineffectiveness of systemic antimicrobials. Composite dressings (films and wafers) comprising polyox/carrageenan (POL-CAR) and polyox/sodium alginate (POL-SA), loaded with diclofenac (DLF) and streptomycin (STP) were formulated and tested for antibacterial activity against 2 × 105 CFU/mL of Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus representing infected chronic wounds and compared with marketed silver dressings. Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) showed higher values for DLF than STP due to non-conventional antibacterial activity of DLF. The DLF and STP loaded dressings were highly effective against E. coli, P. aeruginosa and S. aureus. POL-SA dressings were more effective against the three types of bacteria compared to POL-CAR formulations, while the DLF and STP loaded dressings showed greater antibacterial activity than the silver-based dressings. The films, showed greater antibacterial efficacy than both wafers and silver dressings. STP and DLF can act synergistically not only to kill the bacteria but also prevent their resistance and biofilm formation compared to silver dressings, while reducing chronic inflammation associated with infection.
