Computer-aided identification of novel inhibitors targeting the Fabl protein of A. baumannii
Jan. 2, 2024
Acinetobacter baumannii, a gram-negative opportunistic bacteria causing nosocomial bloodstream, urinary tract and airway infections, poses a high disease burden worldwide, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. Moreover, A. baumannii is a multidrug resistance (MDR) critical priority pathogen that could contribute up to 10 million deaths annually by 2050. Therefore, novel antibiotic approaches to treat MDR A. baumannii constitute a critical medical need.
