Bioactive compounds in a marine sponge show potential to kill antibiotic-resistant bacteria

Publicado em 13 julho 2022
A research group led by scientists at the University of São Paulo (USP) in São Carlos, Brazil, has identified a number of bioactive compounds in a marine sponge collected on Fernando de Noronha, an archipelago about 400 km off the coast of Brazil's Northeast region. Some of the substances proved capable of killing bacteria that are resistant to currently available antibiotics, paving the way to development of new drugs. The study was supported by FAPESP and reported in an [...]
