Abstract

Antimicrobial resistance remains a substantial global health concern, invigorating the critical need for alternate therapeutic options to combat chronic intracellular infections and biofilms so as to shorten the hospital stays, and hence mortality. Nanomaterials have been developed as delivery carriers for antibiotics to improve their penetration through these biofilms. Nanoformulations of existing antibiotics has led to enhanced bioavailability and site specificity. Moreover, diagnosis of infections using efficient nanosensors or probes may speed up the treatment process at earlier stages of infection.
