Silver Dressing and Bacteria

Wound management in an era of increasing bacterial antibiotic resistance: A role for topical silver treatment(NOT OPEN ACCESS) SUMMARY: One way of fighting antibiotic resistant bacteria is to prevent them from growing in the first place. This article looks at three different types of silver dressing, intended to do just that: silver nitrate, silver sulfadiazine,… Continue reading Silver Dressing and Bacteria

Using Nanoparticles to Treat Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

Recent advances in the treatment of pathogenic infections using antibiotics and nano-drug delivery vehicles SUMMARY: This article talks about the different ways to combat antibiotic resistant bacterial infections. Most of the articles and methods focus on nanoparticles, coating nanoparticles with antibodies to detect pathogens, and creating an immune response using vaccination-like methods. LESSON COMMENTS: An… Continue reading Using Nanoparticles to Treat Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria
