Institution: Jan Kochanowski University of Kielce, Poland
Cell Line: VH10 (Human foreskin fibroblasts)
Research Area: Antibiotics
Conclusions: Antibiotic resistance is a rising issue worldwide and becoming one of the most challenging problems in our time. Thus alternative antimicrobial therapies are urgently required. In this study, the authors have used new manganese (II) complex to target bacterial pathogen by inhibiting the biofilm formation and other antibacterial activity in the primary human fibroblast (VH10) model. HoloMonitor M4 was used to count cell numbers after various treatments to study cell viability.
