New and more aggressive antibiotic resistant bacteria arise at an alarming rate and represent an ever-growing challenge to global health care systems. Consequently, the development of new antimicrobial agents is required to overcome the inefficiency of conventional antibiotics and bypass treatment limitations related to these pathologies. In this study, we(More)
It is well known that nanomaterials properties and applications are dependent on the size, shape, and morphology of these structures. Among nanomaterials, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have attracted attention since they have considerably versatile properties, such as a variable surface area to volume ratio, which is very useful for many biomedical and(More)
The rational synthesis of alternative materials is highly demanding due to the outbreak of infectious diseases and resistance to antibiotics. Herein, we report a tailored nanoantibiotic synthesis protocol where the antibiotic binding was optimized on the silver-silica core-shell nanoparticles surface to maximize biological responses. The obtained silver(More)
