Latest paper from group: Investigating the In Vivo Antimicrobial Activity of a Self-Assembling Peptide Hydrogel Using a Galleria mellonella Infection Model

Our latest research paper is now freely available via the journal ACS Omega, whereby we use an innovative waxworm (Galleria mellonella) model as an alternative to mammalian/vertebrate testing. The following assay can be very simply performed without any specific ethical approval or animal licenses. We successfully employed the methods outlined to study the antimicrobial efficacy and toxicity of our (naphthalene-2-ly)-acetyl-diphenylalanine-dilysine-OH (NapFFKK-OH) peptide hydrogel.

Always of major interest in our conference presentations, we hope we now are able to provide a validated method to study new Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients.

We’d like to thank all those who contributed!!
