With its favorable profile, MRX-I has the potential to be a safer option to effectively treat severe infections caused by drug resistant gram-positive bacteria
Isoconazole nitrate displays a broad spectrum of antimicrobial action against dermatophytes, yeasts, moulds and gram-positive bacteria
Ampicillin is more effective against Gram-positive bacteria

Professor Kleerebezem's expertise centres around genetics and the molecular biology and physiology of Gram-positive bacteria
, with a special focus on lactic acid bacteria (LAB).
For gram-positive bacteria
, there is a lack of evidence rather than evidence of no effect.
T-3811, which has a wide antibacterial spectrum, has beneficial effects on gram-positive bacteria
including penicillin-resistant pneumococcus and methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus.
The issuance of these patents and our ability to complete a high resolution ribosomal structure from Gram-positive bacteria
are two significant achievements that attest to the strength of Rib-X's approach to creating novel and potent antibiotics that overcome resistant bacteria," said Susan Froshauer, Ph.
Initial antibacterial testing results indicate that the natural product is effective against gram-positive bacteria
and not gram-negative bacteria.
Acticoat[R], from Smith & Nephew, is a silver-coated antimicrobial dressing that offers broad protection from more than 150 types of wound pathogens, including gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria
, fungal organisms, and antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as MRSA and VRE.
The luxI and luxR systems have been identified in de almost all gram-negative bacteria, and cell-to-cell signaling molecules (peptides) have been identified in more than 30 species of gram-positive bacteria
Sepsis incidence and deaths are increasing, and gram-positive bacteria
and fungal organisms are increasingly common culprits.
Columbia and Rockefeller Universities signed an agreement to commercialize a new technology that re-sensitizes resistant bacteria to vancomycin, considered the treatment of last resort for Gram-positive bacteria
The gatifloxacin technology has shown the potential to enhance bactericidal action and decrease the rate of development of resistance in gram-positive bacteria
