Novel therapies to prevent bacterial infections are of utmost importance in biomedical research due to the emergence of multidrug-resistant strains of bacteria. Herein, we report the preparation, characterization and antibacterial evaluation of sulfonated polystyrene nanoparticles simultaneously releasing two antibacterial species, nitric oxide (NO) and… CONTINUE READING
