Newly engineered peptides could prevent superbug crisis

Infections with multidrug-resistant (MDR) organisms such as Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterococcus faecium, Escherichia coli (ESKAPEE pathogens), Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter spp., a Acinetobacter baumannii, is a significant public health threat to the global population. However, there are currently no drugs available that effectively resist MDR organisms. Studies: The engineered peptide PLG0206 overcomes the limitations of …
