BACKGROUND Ceragenins, synthetic mimics of endogenous antibacterial peptides, are promising candidate antimicrobial agents. However, in some settings their strong bactericidal activity is associated with toxicity towards host cells. To modulate ceragenin CSA-13 antibacterial activity and biocompatibility, CSA-13-coated magnetic nanoparticles (MNP-CSA-13)(More)
Thorough understanding of magnetic nanoparticle (MNP) properties is essential for developing new theranostics. In this study, we provide evidence that non-modified magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles and their functionalized derivatives may be used to restrict growth and capture different pathogens. Coprecipitation of Fe(2+) and Fe(3+) ions in an alkaline(More)
