Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) matrix incorporated with nisin as a novel antimicrobial biomaterial.

Abstract

The use of poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) matrix as a biomolecule carrier has been receiving great attention due to its potential therapeutic application. In this context, we investigated the PLGA matrix capacity to incorporate nisin, an antimicrobial peptide capable of inhibiting the growth of Gram-positive bacteria and bacterial spores germination… (More)
