Recent Advances in pH-Responsive nanomaterials for anti-infective therapy

Abstract

Inspired by the slight acidic microenvironment, a variety of pH-responsive nanomaterials are designed for high antibacterial therapy through improving the ability of drug penetration and retention to enhance the therapeutic efficacy of phototherapy or control the surface adhesion. This review summarizes the common pH-responsive modes, highlights the recent or potential applications of pH-responsive nanomaterials in anti-infective therapy. Finally, the challenges and prospects of pH-responsive nanomaterials in clinical transformation are discussed.
