Abstract

Antibacterial quorum-sensing molecules are a new type of antibacterial reagent that blocks bacterial communications and dampens virulence. These molecules are proposed to tackle the roots of drug resistance and to be long lasting, although more research should be done toward the effectiveness and resistance of these drugs.
