A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

ACS Nano 2019 Mar;

Multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (TB) is a major public health problem concerning about half a million cases each year. Patients hardly adhere to the current strict treatment consisting of more than 10,000 tablets over a 2-year period. There is a clear need for efficient and better formulated medications. We have previously shown that nanoparticles made of cross-linked poly-β-cyclodextrins (pβCD) are efficient vehicles for pulmonary delivery of powerful combinations of anti-TB drugs. Here, we report that in addition to be efficient drug carriers, pβCD nanoparticles are endowed with intrinsic antibacterial properties. Empty pβCD nanoparticles are able to impair M. tuberculosis (Mtb) establishment after pulmonary administration in mice. pβCD hamper colonisation of macrophages by Mtb by interfering with lipid rafts, without inducing toxicity. Moreover, pβCD provoke macrophage apoptosis leading to depletion of infected cells, thus creating a lung micro-environment detrimental to Mtb persistence. Taken together, our results suggest that pβCD nanoparticles loaded or not with antibiotics have an antibacterial action by their own and could be used as carrier in drug regimen formulations effective against TB.
