Cross-Linked Polymer-Stabilized Nanocomposites for the Treatment of Bacterial Biofilms.

Abstract

Infections caused by bacterial biofilms are an emerging threat to human health. Conventional antibiotic therapies are ineffective against biofilms due to poor penetration of the extracellular polymeric substance secreted by colonized bacteria coupled with the rapidly growing number of antibiotic-resistant strains. Essential oils are promising natural… (More)
