Abstract

Improved treatment and prevention strategies, such as antimicrobial mouthwashes, may be important for addressing the public health threat of antimicrobial-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Here, we describe the activity of seven common antibacterial mouthwashes and antiseptics against N. gonorrhoeae isolates, incorporating the use of a human saliva test matrix. Our data demonstrate that antibacterial mouthwashes and antiseptics vary in their ability to inhibit the in vitro growth of N. gonorrhoeae and saliva may impact this inhibitory activity.
