Antibacterial effects of gold-chitosan nanocomposites on human macrophages infected by intracellular pathogenic bacteria

Gracia Mendoza

University of Zaragoza

Dr Gracia Mendoza is senior postdoctoral researcher at Institute of Nanoscience of Aragon (Spain). Her research topics are study of new nanocomposites as bactericidal agents for their use in medical devices, the development of novel and biocompatible nanodevices and controlled drug delivery systems for different diseases, testing their suitability as novel therapeutic approaches both in vitro and in vivo, and the development of scaffolds for regenerative medicine.


Introduction: Bacteria have developed resistances to antibiotics with the subsequent negative consequences in the treatment of different pathogenic infections. Nanomaterials have emerged as a potential bactericidal approach to... [ view full abstract ]
