In the recent year, the appearance of multiple resistances of the antimicrobial agent toward the different types of pathogenic bacteria is the most prominent threat to the global public health. The invention of antibiotic to the medical field has great impact on human mortality and morbidity. However, the multi drug resistance (MDR) effect of the pathogenic bacterial towards commonly used antibiotics has impeded the treatment of bacterial infections.
This lecture will focus on Antimicrobial polymers (AMPos) for catheter antibiofilm coating and wound infection with antibacterial hydrogel. The Antimicrobial polymers (AMPos) have been widely used as a promising antimicrobial alternative to combat the infectious disease caused by MDR bacterial. unlike traditional antibiotics, AMPos interact with the bacterial membrane through non-specific electrostatic interaction. And the catheter coating and Hydrogels which based on AMPos that is intrinsically antibacterial and non-leachable have a great potential application for medical devices and implants.
