- ... The increase in severe infections caused by antibiotic drug resistance and the decrease in the number of new antibacterial drugs approved for use in the last few decades are driving the need for the development of new antimicrobial strategies. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are a potential new class of antimicrobial drugs that are expected to solve the problem of global antibiotic drug resistance. ...

- ... Staphylococci are the main pathogens associated with hard-to-control intramammary infections in dairy cattle, and bacterial biofilms are suspected to be responsible for the antimicrobial resistance and persistence of this disease. Biofilms have the ability to resist to higher levels of antibiotics and reduce their efficacy. It is thus necessary to develop strategies targeted to bacterial biofilm i ...
