Researchers Combat Antibiotic-Resistant Infections With Nanodrug

LITTLE ROCK – A research team led by University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) microbiologist Mark Smeltzer, Ph.D., and University of Arkansas chemist Jingyi Chen, Ph.D., has developed an alternative therapeutic approach to fighting antibiotic-resistant infections. The novel method uses a targeted nanodrug consisting of gold nano “cages” loaded with antibiotic that when irradiated [...]
