Nanotechnology has been revealed as a fundamental approach for antibiotics delivery. In this paper, recent
findings demonstrating the superiority of nanocarried-antibiotics over “naked” ones and the ways by which
nanoparticles can help to overwhelm bacterial drug resistance are reviewed. The second part of this paper sheds
light on nanoparticle-bacterium interaction patterns. Finally, key factors affecting the effectiveness of nanoparticles
interactions with bacteria are discussed.
Keywords: Antibiotic, controlled-release, liposome, nanoparticle, resistance, targeting.
