In vitro and in vivo activities of novel cyclic lipopeptides against staphylococcal biofilms.

A worldwide public health problem has resulted from the alarming spread of multi-drug resistant bacteria combined with the frequent occurrence of biofilm-type infections, creating a growing need for new therapies. In this study, we have demonstrated that novel cyclic lipopeptides, such as 1, cyclo-[D-Ala-(12-guanidinododecanoyl)Thr-D-Val-Val-DaThr-D-Asn… CONTINUE READING
