Abstract

In this retrospective evaluation of the 4-year clinical use of minocycline and rifampin-impregnated catheters in bone marrow transplantation (BMT) patients, we report low risk of development of staphylococcal resistance to the antibiotics coating the catheters and efficacy in preventing primary staphylococcal bloodstream infections.
