RNAIII-inhibiting Peptide Affects Biofilm Formation in a Rat Model of Staphylococcal Ureteral Stent Infection

Oscar Cirioni et al. Antimicrob Agents Chemother.

Abstract

Ureteral stents coated with the quorum-sensing inhibitor RNAIII-inhibiting peptide (RIP) were implanted in rat bladders and shown to suppress Staphylococcus aureus formation on the stent and in urine and was especially effective when combined with teicoplanin. Coating ureteral stents with RIP thus increases the efficacy of teicoplanin in preventing ureteral stent-associated staphylococcal infections.
