Researchers developed three molecules that improve the efficacy and reduce the toxicity of existing antibiotics

IBEC researchers have published a study in the journal Nature in which they have designed and developed a three-molecule complex that increases the efficacy and stability, while reducing the toxicity, of existing antibiotics. During the research, they found that this complex enhances the interaction of the drug with bacterial membranes, allowing a more controlled release. This discovery opens up the possibility of making antimicrobial treatments with lower doses, which would also allow the development of new treatments for antibiotics that are no longer used due to their toxicity.
