RESEARCH : Anti-Microbial

Anti-microbial compounds (AMC) are produced by a wide variety of biological life form processes. AMCs are found among all living organisms such as microbes, plants and animals. AMCs are potent, narrow and broad spectrum antibiotics which demonstrate potential as novel therapeutic and food preserving agents able to kill conventional-antibiotic resistant bacteria, e.g., M. tuberculosis and enveloped viruses and fungi. Their mechanism of action is varied and may include membrane disruption and/or metabolic interference. AMCs may exist in natural free intact form or lay latent thereby requiring further processing prior to activation and liberation
