A nanoantibiotic that increases the effectiveness of levofloxacin to destroy the biofilm formed by the model bacterium E. coli is presented.
Impact of the antibiotic-cargo from MSNs on Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial biofilms.
A systematic and quantitative study of the direct effect of the antibiotic-cargo released from MSNs on Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial biofilms and opens up promising expectations in the design of personalized MSNs-based nanotherapies to treat chronic bone infection.
Single Continuous Near-Infrared Laser-Triggered Photodynamic and Photothermal Ablation of Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Using Effective Targeted Copper Sulfide Nanoclusters.
This work took advantage of the excellent photothermal and photodynamic properties of copper sulfide nanoparticles upon NIR laser irradiation and thiazole derivative as a membrane-targeting cationic ligand toward bacteria to highlight the promise of the highly versatile multifunctional nanoantibiotics in bacterial infection.
Surface-Adaptive, Antimicrobially Loaded, Micellar Nanocarriers with Enhanced Penetration and Killing Efficiency in Staphylococcal Biofilms.
The preparation of surface-adaptive, Triclosan-loaded micellar nanocarriers showing enhanced biofilm penetration and accumulation, electrostatic targeting at acidic pH toward negatively charged bacterial cell surfaces in a biofilm, and antimicrobial release due to degradation of the micelle core by bacterial lipases constitutes a highly effective pathway to control blood-accessible staphylococcal biofilms using antimicrobials, bypassing biofilm recalcitrance to antimicrobial penetration.
Biofilm Inhibition and Elimination Regulated by Cationic Conjugated Polymers.
In this work, we demonstrate that water-soluble conjugated polymers (PFP) have the ability to inhibit biofilm formation and eradicate mature established biofilm using reactive oxygen species (ROS)
Eradicating group A streptococcus bacteria and biofilms using functionalised multi-wall carbon nanotubes
The premise that carbon nanotubes may be effectively utilised as highly localised photothermal agents with the potential for translation into the clinical treatment of bacterial infections of soft tissue is supported.
Nanomaterials with a photothermal effect for antibacterial activities: an overview.
Four functional categories of antibacterial nanomaterials with a photothermal conversion effect are classified: carbon-based nanoconjugates of graphene derivatives or carbon nanotubes, noble metal nanom material mainly from gold and silver, metallic compound nanocomposites, and polymeric as well as other nanostructures.
Targeted photothermal lysis of the pathogenic bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, with gold nanorods.
This work uses gold nanorods that have been covalently linked to primary antibodies to selectively destroy the pathogenic Gram-negative bacterium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and finds that, following nanorod attachment to the bacterial cell surface, exposure to near-infrared radiation results in a significant reduction in bacterial cell viability.
Multifunctional pH sensitive 3D scaffolds for treatment and prevention of bone infection.
In vitro competitive assays between preosteoblastic and bacteria onto the 3D scaffold surface demonstrated an adequate osteoblast colonization in entire scaffolds surface together with the ability to eliminate bacteria contamination.
