Medical Devices

Medical DevicesMedical device associated infections are a major problem in hospitals, particularly in critical care. Resistant organisms are especially concerning and cause infections that are difficult to treat.

Ai2 peptides can be used to coat medical devices preventing their colonisation by pathogenic microbes and stopping these devices acting as a nidus of infection. The efficacy Ai2’s peptides have against resistant strains of organisms while being unlikely to cause resistance themselves would give added protection to vulnerable patients.
