New anti-infective material developed in wounds
STOCKHOLM: Scientists have developed a new material to prevent wound infections.
According to the details, scientists have developed a material (new hydrogel) that will prevent infection in wounds as well as work against all kinds of bacteria.
Scientists say that this hydrogel has been shown to be effective in wound healing and immediate healing, especially against antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
This new material, developed by researchers at Sweden’s Chalmers University of Technology, which prevents infection in wounds, is a specially designed hydrogel that works against all kinds of bacteria. Yes, including antibiotic resistance.
The new material is being touted as a major hope for tackling the growing global problem of antibiotic resistance, with the World Health Organization calling antibiotic-resistant bacteria a major threat to global health.
Professor Martin Anderson, a researcher in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Chalmers University, said: Have become resistant.
The active ingredient in this new bactericide is antimicrobial peptides, antimicrobial peptides are small proteins that are found naturally in our immune system.
According to Martin Anderson, with these types of peptides, the risk of bacteria developing resistance to them is very low, as they only affect the outer membranes of the bacteria. It should be noted that researchers have been trying to use peptides for a long time, but they were not successful.
