In order to protect against infections in the elderly patients, bactericidal clothes were used. Ninety elderly patients were divided into two groups; the control group and the other group with bactericidal clothes. In period I neither group received particular treatment for three months and in period II only the treated group used bactericidal clothes for three months. The control group in period II used regular clothes throughout. Cause of fever (>37°C) extending more than 10 or 15 days were significantly lower in the treated group than in the control group. It was suggested that the bactericidal clothes reduce infections in elderly patients.
