Background The existence of bacterial biofilms has been recognized as a cause for re-occurrence of infectious diseases. Nanoparticles (NP) based on poly(lactic-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA) are biocompatible drug delivery systems and have recently been shown to penetrate into biofilms. The present study, therefore, aims to fabricate PLGA NP containing..
