BACKGROUND The increasing emergence of clinical infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) challenges existing therapeutic options and highlights the need to develop novel treatment strategies. The ftsZ gene is essential to bacterial cell division. METHODS In this study, two antisense peptide nucleic acids (PNAs) conjugated to(More)
Invasive aspergillosis is a life-threatening infection in immunocompromised patients, and treating these infections at an early stage is often crucial for a favorable outcome. Early diagnosis, however, remains challenging. We performed a retrospective comparison of three methods: real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR), nucleic acid sequence-based amplification(More)
Enterococcus is a major cause of important nosocomial infections. Linezolid, the first member of an entirely new class of antibiotics (oxazolidinones), is effective against serious infections caused by Enterococcus. However, resistance to linezolid has been discovered throughout the world rapidly. From 2011 to 2013, nine linezolid-resistant E. faecalis(More)
Acinetobacter baumannii causes common and severe community- and hospital-acquired infections. The increasing emergence of multidrug-resistant (MDR) and pan-drug resistant A. baumannii has limited the therapeutic options, highlighting the need for new therapeutic strategies. The goal of this study was to investigate whether antisense peptide nucleic acids(More)
