Antibacterial Therapy

Therapy of Severe Bacterial Infections with Viral Structures

Viral structures are used for treating severe bacterial diseases that do not respond to conventional antibiotics. These are usually successful in case that biofilms (i.e., a layer of polysaccharides) protect the bacteria, so that antibiotics are prevented from reaching the pathogens.

In a collaborative project with the group of Professor Dr. Wilfried Weber of the Freiburg BIOSS Centre for Biological Signalling Studies, Freiburg, Germany, our objectives are (i) to encapsulate these viral structures into liposomes and (ii) to selectively address the infected cells via receptor-specific targeting (PhD thesis by Manuel Weis).
