SMART and NTU researchers design polymer that can kill drug-resistant bacteria
Researchers from Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have developed an antimicrobial polymer that can kill bacteria resistant to commonly used antibiotics - a discovery that can pave the way for developing antibiotics to which bacteria are significantly less resistant. The new beta-peptide polymer can combat superbugs like Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and it also works against biofilm and persistent bacteria for which current antibiotics have proved ineffective.
