Advances in nanotechnology have seen the development of several microbiocidal nanoparticles displaying activity against biofilms. These applications benefit from one or more combinations of the nanoparticle properties. Nanoparticles may indeed concentrate drugs on their surface resulting in polyvalent effects and improved efficacy to fight against bacteria.(More)
Atmospheric pressure DC-driven self-pulsing transient spark (TS) discharge operated in air and pulse-driven dielectric barrier discharge plasma jet (PJ) operated in helium in contact with water solutions were used for inducing chemical effects in water solutions, and the treatment of bacteria (Escherichia coli), mammalian cells (Vero line normal cells, HeLa(More)
A 980nm laser-driven antimicrobial photothermal therapy using poly(vinylpyrrolidone) -coated Prussian Blue nanoparticles (PVP/PB NPs) is demonstrated. This approach allows an efficient eradication of a virulent strain of Gram-negative Escherichia coli (E. coli) associated with urinary tract infection as well as for the ablation of antibiotic resistant(More)
