What is the significance of a non-leaching dressing?

Leaching leads to sub-minimum inhibitory concentrations which can lead to resistant strain formation or antimicrobial adaptation. When considering dressings as prophylaxis and as an important part of an infection prevention program, only dressings that consistently demonstrate no chance of causing antimicrobial resistance should be considered. Leaching antimicrobials can also lead to delayed wound healing.
