*The activity of the antimicrobial agent is localized at the catheter surfaces and is not intended for treatment of systemic infections. In vitro testing demonstrated that the Oligon agent provided broad spectrum effectiveness (≥ 3 log reduction from initial concentration within 48 hours) against the organisms tested: Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterococcus faecalis, Candida albicans, Escherichia coli, Serratia marcescens, Acinetobacter calcoaceticus, Corynebacterium diptheriae, Enterobacter aerogenes, GMRSa, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida glabrata and VRE (Enterococcus faecium).
