Gezielte Freisetzung von Antibiotika mit Nanoreaktoren

Chemiker der Universität Basel haben winzige Nanokugeln entwickelt, die das häufig eingesetzte Antibiotikum Cephalexin herstellen und lokal freisetzen können. Wenn es gelingt, solche Nanoreaktoren in medizinische Implantate einzubauen, liessen sich gezielt bakterielle Infektionen bekämpfen, ohne dass der Wirkstoff über den ganzen Körper verteilt wird.
