Therapeutic nanoplatforms with bacteria-specific activation for directional transport of antibiotics

Author affiliations

Abstract

An entirely new strategy is explored for directional transport delivery of antibiotics to bacteria utilizing a bacteria-activated nanoplatform. The nanoplatform can effectively prevent the premature leakage of the therapeutic payload, but release was triggered when the nanoplatforms adhere to bacteria, promising potential applications for the delivery of a wide-range of antimicrobials.
