- ... The devastating infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) coupled with its high resistance towards antibiotics underscores the need for an effective anti-MRSA therapeutic. The present study illustrates the use of a salicylaldehyde based bactericidal amphiphile (C1) in generating a micellar carrier that renders delivery of therapeutic antibiotics. The inherent membrane ...
