The identification of new strategies for the control of antimicrobial resistance of etiologically relevant microorganisms (H. pyloriM. abscessus, microorganisms related to chronic wounds, P. aeruginosa, S. aureus, C. albicans), represents an important field of study of our research group. The evaluation of antimicrobial activity, antibiofilm and antivirulence of natural substances, bioactive compounds derived from essential oils, compounds of semi-synthesis, co-drugs containing natural compounds and liposomal preparations with graphene also in synergy with chemoantibiotics commonly used in therapy has been studied against drug-resistant and/or biofilm-forming pathogens, in order to develop alternative strategies for biomedical applications.
