Cationic amphiphilic alpha-helical peptides for the treatment of carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii infection.


The emergence of multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria, in particular Acinetobacter baumannii and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, is a critical clinical problem worldwide. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) have received increasing attention due to their ability to overcome multidrug-resistant microbes. We recently reported that cysteine-functionalized alpha… (More)
