PURPOSE: Our research is focused onto a biocompatible system based on polymer-coated cerium oxide nanoparticles (nanoceria). The starting point envisages the nanoceria ability to transition from Ce+3 to Ce+4, conducting to a barrier behaviour for living systems against oxidative stress. Despite the fact that numerous reports highlight nanoceria’s role as potential antioxidant towards intracellular reactive oxygen species, due to scavenging the free radicals, according to our knowledge, their antibacterial response has been barely touched upon scientific works. More over our study centers on the essence that the nanoceria’s architecture attributes can be tailored in a predictable manner to fulfil the requirements of antibacterial performance against both the Gram positive and Gram negative bacterial strains.
