Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The first volume of the Special Issue “Nontraditional Antibiotics—Challenges and Triumphs” was published in 2019. It was a successful issue with nine published papers, encouraging us to open a second volume with the same topic.
This second volume aims to complement the 2019 Special Issue and invites submissions that highlight the current advances supporting the development and application of nontraditional antibiotic therapies. Topics may include but are not limited to:
- Antibodies, including antibody/antibiotic conjugates;
- Bacteriophages and lysins;
- Microbiome modulation;
- Narrow spectrum agents;
- Antibiotic potentiators and inactivators;
- Antimicrobial and immunomodulatory peptides;
- Biofilm disruptors;
- Virulence modulators;
- Targeted degradation approaches.
