Modified antibiotics-methylated ampicillin and ethylated ampicillin-inhibit growth of ampicillin-resistant strain of bacteria.


Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is a significant problem in health facilities and results in higher costs for health care and increased fatalities due to infection. The work presented here suggests that antibiotic molecular structure can be altered in a selected manner, which will revive the bacterial growth inhibiting capability. A bacterial strain… (More)
