Artificial antimicrobial peptides could help overcome drug-resistant bacteria

NewsTo help combat this growing public health problem, some scientists are exploring antimicrobial peptides naturally occurring peptides found in most organisms. Most of these are not powerful enough to fight off infections in humans, so researchers are trying to come up with new, more potent versions.Contributed Author: MITTopics: Pharma

Artificial antimicrobial peptides could help overcome drug-resistant bacteria

During the past several years, many strains of bacteria have become resistant to existing antibiotics, and very few new drugs have been added to the antibiotic arsenal.
