SPECTROSCOPIC INVESTIGATION OF ANTI-BACTERIAL AGENTS ACTIVITY. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Abstract FTIR spectroscopy has been widely used in recent time as a efficient tool to biomedical investigations. In this study we examined the potential of FTIR microspectroscopy as analytical instrument for early evaluation of anti-bacterial therapy efficiency. For this purpose, the effect of propolis (PE) on the development of bacterial infection in cell culture was examined. PE is a natural honeybee product with a potent antibacterial activity. Our results show early (2h post treatment) unique and significant …
