This review encompasses an update on the worldwide research activities made towards developing antimicrobials against the persistent threats from multidrug-resistant gram-negative infection. The lethality of endotoxin or lipopolysaccharide and its conserved bioactive moiety, lipid A, is discussed. We include documentation of our own research efforts towards the development of novel endotoxin antagonists and antimicrobials such as Sushi peptides, derived from the horseshoe crab Factor C, which… CONTINUE READING
