Curd-peptide based novel hydrogel inhibits biofilm formation, quorum sensing, swimming mortility of multi-antibiotic resistant clinical isolates and accelerates wound healing activity

The search for a bioactive natural antibacterial agent with wound healing properties is a common practice for the development of new-generation molecules. Antimicrobial peptides are a good alternative to antibiotics and easy-to-form hydrogels under self-assembled conditions without pH adjustment. With this in mind, the peptide pool was extracted from a formulated curd composed of a blend of probiotic bacteria such as Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus casei, and Bifidobacterium bifidum at an optimized ratio of 7:1:2.
