marine bioprospecting - Novel Drugs from the Sea

Antibacterial Compounds

Bacteria isolated from harvested marine samples are screened for antibacterial activity towards a range of Multi-Drug Resistant (MDR) pathogenic bacteria resistant to several important classes of antibiotics, including glycopeptides (e.g vancomycin), carbepenems, β-lactams, cephalosporines, quinolons, tetracyclines, glycylcycliner and aminoglycosides.
