A study reported in ACS Nano journal has reported development of nanoparticles capable of delivering higher antibiotic doses to sitexs of infection.
The study has been published on web on April 3, 2012 and is reported by Aleksandar F. Radovic-Moreno and colleagues
It si a well known fact that bacteriae have remarkable capacities to develop resistance to antibiotics. Some drugs may be effective at higher doses but the side effects of the drugs prohibit from administering higher doses to the patients.
To overcome this limitation researchers at Massachusetts institute of technologyand Brigham and Women’s Hospital have developed a nanoparticle that can deliver large doses of antibiotics right to the site of bacterial infection. [Read more...]
