Evaluation of the antimicrobial activity of cationic polymers against mycobacteria: Toward antitubercular macromolecules

Abstract:

Antimicrobial resistance is a global healthcare problem with a dwindling arsenal of usable drugs. Tuberculosis, caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, requires long-term combination therapy and multi- and totally drug resistant strains have emerged. This study reports the antibacterial activity of cationic polymers against mycobacteria, which are distinguished from other Gram-positive bacteria by their unique cell wall comprising a covalently linked mycolic acid−arabinogalactan−peptidoglycan c...
