Peptides vs. superbugs

(Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA)) Several peptides have an antibacterial effect -- but they are broken down in the human body too quickly to exert this effect. Empa researchers have now succeeded in encasing peptides in a protective coat, which could prolong their life in the human body. This is an important breakthrough because peptides are considered to be a possible solution in the fight against antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
