Today’s cyclodextrin:

Improving antibacterial drugs’ physicochemical characteristics and biological activities has been in the focus of CD research for a long time. This extensive review by deals with this topic showing the biological results rvealing the antibacterial effect of the inclusion complexes was extensively improved. Cyclodextrins can enhance the therapeutic effects of antibiotics already existing on the market, natural products and synthetic molecules. Overall, CDs as drug-delivery vehicles have been shown to improve antibiotics solubility, stability, and bioavailability, leading to enhanced antibacterial activity.
