New Hydrogel Material For Wound Treatment Can Kill Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

Hydrogel Material Kills Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have developed a new material that kills bacteria and could potentially prevent infections in wounds – a specially designed hydrogel, that works against all types of bacteria, including antibiotic-resistant ones. The active substance in the new bactericidal material consists of antimicrobial peptides, small proteins which are found naturally in our immune system. (Photo credit: Anna-Lena Lundqvist)
