Drug-Resistant Infections (MRSA) and The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

Monday, 14 January 2019

“It’s a problem that likely means very little to the average person until it happens to them and then it means a lot. Being infected by a superbug is super difficult and is a widespread and growing concern. But the ECS may serve as a natural line of defense against MRSA orotherantibiotic-resistant bacteria. Due to their anti-biofilm action agents that affect/potentiate the ECS could be a promising alternative to antibiotic therapeutics against biofilm-associated MRSA infections.”
- Dr. David Hepburn


Infections caused by antibiotic-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus have reached epidemic proportions globally.

Staphylococcalbiofilms are associated with increased antimicrobial resistance and are generally less affected by host immune factors. Therefore, there is an urgent need for novel agents that not only aim at multidrug-resistant pathogens, but also ones that will act as anti biofilms.
