Cinnamon Could Help in Treating Resistant Bacterial Infections
A team of scientists from the Swinburne University of Technology in Australia finds that cinnamon may help in treating resistant bacterial infections breaking up their biofilms — sticky layers that are usually responsible for persistent infections that cannot be broken by antibiotics.
For experiments, the scientists used Pseudomonas aeroginosa, a bacterium commonly responsible for infections in people with weakened immune systems including patients with cancer, diabetes, or cystic fibrosis.
The lead researcher of the study Dr. Sanjida Topa says: “These findings definitely contribute to the search for novel antimicrobials. […] Fabrication of cinnamaldehyde for surface treatments, for example [to treat] skin infections, could be the first direct application.”
