abstract

  • 2.5% w/v solutions of noxythiolin (Noxyflex S®) in saline have been used for twice daily irrigation of the biliary tract of patients undergoing external biliary drainage. No adverse effects which could be associated specifically with noxythiolin administration were noted. Noxythiolin appears safe for intra-biliary instillation and may have specific advantage in the prevention of associated septic complications by reduction of numbers of bacteria in bile.
