Nanoparticles Encapsulate Antibiotics to Reach Well Protected Bacteria

nanoparticles-for-antibioticsThe same bacterial infection can be just a nuisance or a life threatening condition, depending on where it has found a home. Once bacteria begin to form biofilms, it is often too late to administer antibiotics as they can’t penetrate the multi-layered cellular structure that a bacterial colony can form. Typically, large doses of antibiotics are administered to try to fight off the infection, but that can lead to further resistance. Now researchers from the Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research in Saarbrücken, Germany have developed a technique for using nanoparticles to transport antibiotics to where they have not gone before.
