Modulight congratulates Dr. Makoto Mitsunaga et al. Jikei University School of Medicine for publishing their promising results in Communications Biology journal. The team developed a next-generation light-based approach to tackle pathogens, called photoimmuno-antimicrobial strategy (PIAS). This technology was shown to eliminate a broad spectrum of different classes of pathogens, such as viruses, fungi, and bacteria. Unlike antibiotics, PIAS was also effective against drug-resistant pathogens and didn’t damage natural, beneficial microbiota in the host’s tissues. As COVID-19 pandemic and global antimicrobial resistance problem have shown, new promising anti-infective technologies like this are more needed than ever.
