Abstract

Antimicrobial research is being focused to look for more effective therapeutics against antibiotic-resistant infections caused by methicillin-resistantStaphylococcus aureus (MRSA). In this direction, antimicrobial peptides (AMP) appears a promising solution. The aim of the present study was to investigate the potential activity of Temporin A, Citropin 1.1, CA(1-7)M(2-9)NH2 and Pal-KGK-NH2 in synergic activity against MRSA biofilms developed on polystyrene surface (PSS) and central venous catheter (CVC).
