Antimicrobial resistance is an increasing healthcare problem, with new effective treatment strategies urgently needed. Professor Mitsunaga and team at The Jikei University Medical School, Japan, describe a promising treatment called photoimmuno-antimicrobial strategy (PIAS) in a new Nature publication. Detailed instructions how to design and implement the treatment are given, with Modulight’s ML7710 and ML6600 series lasers validated for drug activation in the protocol.
This treatment enables targeted elimination of different microbes, regardless of the species or drug resistance status and could help in tackling both antibiotic-resistant and novel pathogens.
Modulight is very happy to be supporting this research. We would like to deliver our warmest congratulations to the research team!
