BACKGROUND Biodegradable chitosan nanoparticles (CSNPs) with an intrinsic antimicrobial activity may be a good choice to improve the effectiveness of antimicrobial photodynamic inactivation (APDI). The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of CSNPs on the efficiency of methylene blue (MB)-mediated APDI of Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilms. We also assessed the phototoxicity of MB+CSNPs towards human fibroblasts. METHODS CSNPs were prepared using ionic… CONTINUE READING
