1· INTRODUCTION

Disclosed are compositions comprising antimicrobially effective combinations of benzyl alcohol, essential oils and botanical extracts (including plant extracts and fruit extracts).

2. BACKGROUND

Essential oils are volatile oils obtained from plant or animal sources and are composed of complex mixtures of several constituents, such as monoterpenes and sesquiterpene hydrocarbons, monoterpene and sesquiterpene alcohols, esters, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, oxides and the like. These essential oils and their isolated constituents are frequently utilized as fragrance and flavor agents, and have been widely used in folk medicine for wound healing properties.

Scientific research has corroborated the beneficial effects of essential oils. Essential oils of eucalyptus have been found to "possess central and peripheral analgesic effects as well as neutrophil-dependent and independent anti-inflammatory activities" (Silva et al., 2003, J. Ethnopharmacol. 89(2-3);277-283), and similar activity has been observed in essential oils from Lavendula angustifolia Mill. (Hajhashemi et al., 2003, J. Ethnopharniacol. 89(i):67~71). Essential oils have been demonstrated to exhibit antibacterial (Bezic et al., 2003, Phytother. Res. 17(9 : 1037- 1040; Goren et al., 2003, Z. Naturforsch. 58(9-10):687-690; de Abreu Gonzaga et al., 2003, Planta Med. 69(8 :773-775; Valero and Salmera, 2003, Int. J. Food Microbiol. 85(1 -2): 73-81) and antifungal (Paranagama et al., 2003, Lett. Appl. Microbiol. 37(l);86-90; Shin, 2003, Arch. Pharni. Res. 26(5):389-393; Velluti et al, 2003, Int. J. Food Microbiol. 89: 145-154) activities. Virucidal activity of essential oils has also been observed, including direct virucidal effects against Herpes simplex viruses types 1 and 2 (Garcia et al., Phytother. Res. 17(9): 1073- 1075; Minami et al., 2003, Microbial Immunol. 47(a):681-684; Schuhmacher et al, 2003, Phytomedicine 10:504- 510).

United States Patent Application Publication No. 20050048139 by Modak et al., published March 3, 2005, relates to topical compositions comprising an emollient solvent and an essential oil, which may further comprise additional additives, among which citric acid, glycolic acid and lactic acid are cited.

United States Patent Application Publication No. 20050019431 by Modak et al., published January 27, 2005, relates to compositions comprising a quaternary ammonium compound and an essential oil (or active component thereof).

A number of patent applications relate to compositions comprising an essential oil (or component thereof) where zinc salts are added to inhibit irritation associated with essential oils. Examples of such patent applications include United States Patent Application Publication No. 20040102429 by Modak et al., published May 27, 2004 and United States Patent Application Publication No. 20050238602 by Modak et al., published October 27, 2005, now U.S. Patent No. 7,435,429.

United States Patent No. 6,858,317 by Aamodt et al., issued February

22, 2005, relates to methods for protecting wood from mold and sap staining fungi which employ a non-toxic mold inhibitor which may be a plant extract such as an essential oil.

United States Patent No. 5, 100,652 by Kross et al., issued March 31, 1992, relates to low concentration chlorous-acid generating oral hygiene compositions which may comprise an essential oil as a flavoring agent.

United States Patent No. 5,310,546 by Douglas, issued May 10, 1994, relates to a mouth rinse preparation comprising hydrogen peroxide, zinc chloride, sodium citrate, sodium lauryl sulfate, citric acid and ethanol and optionally an essential oil which is a denaturing agent.

BiON offers several skin care products comprising citric acid, botanicals, and other agents for topical use (San Diego, CA, US).

Johnson et al. (U.S. Pat. No. 6,319,958 and US20020165130) relates to the use of sesquiterpenoids to promote uptake of exogenous antimicrobial compounds. Similarly, a related article discloses the use of sesquiterpenoids, such as nerolidol, farnesol, bisabolol and apritone, in enhancing bacterial permeability and susceptibility to exogenous antimicrobial compounds, suggesting that sesquiterpenoids have a non-specific and general effect (Brehm-Stecher et al, 2003, Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 47(10):3357-3360). In particular, Brehm- Stecher et al. report that nerolidol, farnesol, bisabolol and apritone enhanced the susceptibility of S. aureus to the antibiotics erythromycin, gentamicin, vancomycin, ciproflaxin, clindamycin, and tetracycline.

United States Patent No. 4,867,898 by Spaulding et al., issued

September 19, 1989, relates to a liquid hard surface cleaner comprising pine oil and organic, oil-soluble acids at a pH from 0-6.

United States Patent No. 6,753,305 by Raso and Caselli, issued June 22, 2004, relates to a hard surface disinfectant comprising up to 20 percent of cinnamon oil or a component thereof, 0.01-5 percent of an organic acid, and optionally an additional essential oil.

International Patent Application Publication No. WO2007/077573 by Mukhopadhyay, published July 12, 2007, relates to antimicrobial compositions comprising an antimicrobial agent, such as triclosan, and a functionalized hydrocarbon, where the functionalized hydrocarbon can be an essential oil, and/or a solvent.

Infection continues to be the major problem in the management of patients with bum wounds, decubitus ulcers and other surface infections. Control of skin infections is most important in preventing bacteremia and enhancing wound healing. Topical creams containing silver sulfadiazine and other topical antimicrobial agents have been developed and widely used for such purposes. However, complete control of target infection has not been achieved with the use of these agents. 1% silver sulfadiazine (Silvadene®) cream has been effectively used as a prophylactic cream to control burn wound infections. However, it is not very effective in treating established deep wound infections due to the drug's failure to penetrate the wound eschar. The incidence of wound colonization with S. aureus or C. albicans in Silvadene® treated patients has spurred research for other agents.

It has been well established that continuous control of infection facilitates rapid healing of partial thickness bums, decubitus ulcers and other types of surgical wounds and facilitates their closure. Wound healing, especially in bums, is a complex process for which zinc has been found essential. Studies on zinc have shown beneficial results in wound healing with acceleration of the re-epithelialization process and an antibacterial effect. Zinc oxide has been reported to activate endogenous zinc-dependent matrix metalloproteinases, augment expression of endogenous growth factors and facilitate keratinocyte migration.

In earlier studies, topical treatment of bum wounds with zinc sulfadiazine was found to accelerate wound healing better than treatment with silver sulfadiazine. (Gyn and Obstet, 142:553-559 (1976)).

To prevent or reduce infection of burn wounds, topical ointments have been used. These ointments have incorporated silver sulfadiazine (U.S. Patent No. 3,761 ,590, incorporated herein by reference) or various antibiotics. A topical ointment for burns has also been reported which contains a combination of silver salts and norfloxocin, a quinoline antibiotic, or its salts (U.S. Patent No. 4,404,197, incorporated hereby by reference). In the case where the antibiotic is silver norfloxocin, U.S. Patent No. 4,404,197 reports a synergistic enhancement of activity. U.S. Patent No. 5,374,432 relates to topical anti -infective ointments containing an antibiotic, silver salt, and sterile carrier. These compositions were found to not only provide improved antimicrobial efficacy, but also reduced incidence of microbial resistance.

U.S. Patent No. 6,987,133 relates to a topical preparation containing silver sulfadiazine dispersed or solubilized in a cream or lotion base matrix which can be sprayed directly on the burn wound. European Patent No. EP0653214 relates to a topical antibacterial preparation containing silver sulfadiazine and collagen for the treatment of infected hands and for the advancement of their healing. There is a continuing desire for an antimicrobial or wound healing composition that are non- irritating, safe, and effective for repeated use in various professional and non-professional settings. 3.

4.17 MEDICAL DEVICES

In a subset of non-limiting embodiments, the present subject matter provides for medical devices comprising the formulations outlined above.

Implantation of a medical device produces rapid inflammatory reaction at the implantation site. This may result in the formation of a biofilm on the surface of the medical device. The biofilm on the surface of a medical device serves as a receptor for microbes resulting in microbial adhesion. Prevention of inflammation around the implanted medical device can prevent bacterial adherence on the device. This may be achieved by maintaining an inflammation and infection-free environment around the device by coating and/or impregnating the device with anti inflammatory agents and antimicrobials.

Anti-inflammatory antimicrobial compositions comprising a combination of benzyl alcohol, 1,3 propanediol and THC (with or without other antimicrobials such as chlorhexidine and silver salts) can be used to coat or impregnate medical devices such as catheters, wound dressing, soft tissue patches, etc.

EXAMPLE 1

Antimicrobial efficacy of an aqueous botanical hand disinfectant foam A: rapid (15 second") and broad spectrum antibacterial efficacy

The FDA TFM method (modified slightly by using lower volumes of sanitizer and microbe culture, but in the same proportion) for testing the efficacy to rapidly kill bacteria was used. The rapid antibacterial activity (15 seconds exposure) of the hand foam of the present subject matter was tested against various organisms listed in Table 1. The hand foam tested comprised the following formulation.

Method:

Briefly, hand foam (0.8 ml) was placed in a sterile culture tube and 0.2 ml of 109 cfu/ml of test bacterial culture (or 107 cfu/ml of Candida culture), diluted 1 : 1 with bovine adult serum, was added and mixed. After 15 s, the antimicrobial activity was stopped with drug neutralizing fluid (DNF). Serial dilutions were made with DNF, and aliquots were subcultured on trypticase soy agar to determine the number of microbial colonies per sample. For controls, phosphate buffered saline (PBS) containing the same bacterial cultures were used instead of the test formulation. The antibacterial activity was calculated by determining the difference in iogio colony-forming units (cfu) between control (Phosphate buffer saline) and test samples (i.e., Iogio reduction). 3 experiments, each containing triplicate samples in each group, were performed. For comparison, triclosan and PCMX containing soap, and an alcohol (62%) hand sanitizer, were tested similarly at the same time.

EXAMPLE 2

Rapid, and persistent antibacterial, efficacy of an aqueous botanical hand disinfectant

foamA

A pigskin test method was used to examine the antimicrobial efficacy of an aqueous botanical hand disinfectant. The pigskin test simulates the Volunteer method of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) E-1174 (Test organism: S. aureus). The hand foam tested comprised the following formulation. Aqueous Botanical Hand Disinfectant Foam A

Ingredients %w/w Water 78.15

Hydroxypropyl methyl-cellulose stearoxy ether (Sangelose) 0.1

Allantoin 0.3

Grapefruit seed extract 0.5

Cationic surfactant 0.5

Benzoic acid 0.2

Glucopon 1.3

Silicone (silsurf) 1 -4 Adjust pH= 4.0-4.5

Method:

3 cm2 pieces of pigskins were prepared and each piece was mounted on a petri dish . For the baseline count determinations, 2 skin samples were rinsed under running tap water for 30 seconds and then lathered using 0.5 ml of non-antibacterial soap by rubbing both pieces together for 30 seconds. The pair was then rinsed under running tap water for 30 seconds and blot dried. Each piece of pigskin was contaminated with 15 μΐ of 107 cfu/ml S. aureus culture and rubbed against each other for 30 seconds and dried for 30 seconds. The organisms were recovered from the skin by rinsing each piece with 10 ml of DNF for 15 seconds and collecting the wash. Aliquots from serial dilutions were uniformly spread on TSA plates, incubated for 24-48 hours at 37°C. To evaluate the efficacy of the test sanitizers, the same skin pieces used for baseline count determinations were rinsed under running tap water, washed with non-antibacterial soap, and recontaminated. After the 30-second drying period, 0.5 ml of the test sanitizer was applied on the skin and lathered for 30 seconds. After rinsing, the bacteria were recovered as described above. The contamination and sanitizer applications were repeated an additional 9 times. The bacteria! counts after 1 and 10 applications were determined and the difference in logio colony- forming units (cfu) between the baseline and test samples were calculated (logio reduction). The antimicrobial activity of the hand disinfectant foam is shown below in Table 2.

After 10 application 3.0 ± 0.05

Control counts ranged from 1 x 10s to 5 x 10? cfu/ml. Results are the average of twelve samples in each group. Conclusion :As per US FDA-TFM criteria, the required logio reduction from control counts is 2.0 log after a first application for rapid antimicrobial activity, and 3.0 log after tenth application for persistent antimicrobial activity. Unlike the alcohol sanitizer Purell, an aqueous botanical hand disinfectant foam of the present subject matter exhibits the required US FDA-TFM criteria log reduction.

EXAMPLE 3

Evaluation of the antimicrobial efficacy of a surface disinfectant: in vitro rapid kill

(15 seconds) oiS. aureus

Method:

Surfactant (0.8 ml) was placed in a sterile culture tube and 0.2 ml of 109 cfu/ml of test bacterial culture diluted 1 : 1 with bovine adult serum, was added and mixed. After 15 s, the antimicrobial activity was stopped with drug neutralizing fluid (DNF). Serial dilutions were made with DNF and aliquots were subcultured on trypticase soy agar to determine the number of microbial colonies per sample. For controls, phosphate buffered saline (PBS) containing the same bacterial cultures was used instead of the test formulation. The antibacterial activity was calculated by determining the difference in logio colony- forming units (cfu) between control (phosphate buffer saline) and test samples (i.e., logio reduction). The surface disinfectant tested comprised the following formulation.

EXAMPLE 4

Efficacy of disinfectants on bacteria dried on ceramic tiles following a 10 minute exposure to compositions of the application

Method :

In this experiment, S. aureus, MRSA and E. coll were used as the test organisms. Ceramic tiles with dimensions of 5 x 15 cm2 were cleaned first with water and then with 70% ethanol and dried. Approximately 0.1 m!. of 1 x 107 cfu/ml of each microorganism was spread evenly on the surfaces of the tiles using a sterile glass rod, and allowed to dry for 1 hour. 0.3 ml of surface cleanser of the present subject matter was spread onto the tiles and allowed to dry at room temperature for 10 minutes. The tile surface was rinsed using 9.7 ml of Drug neutralizing fluid (DNF) into a sterile Petri dish to recover the remaining microorganisms on the tile. The recovered media was serially diluted, plated on TSA plates, and incubated at 37°C for 18-24 hrs after which time colony counts were determined. For control, the same procedure was followed, except 0.3 ml of phosphate buffered saline was used instead of surface cleanser. Proquart, a commercial disinfectant containing quaternary ammonium compounds (10.85% quaternary ammonium compounds), from Clorox company was also evaluated simultaneously for comparison. The surface disinfectant tested comprised the following formulation.
