Bacteria can invade immune cells or form biofilms and cause persistent infections. Such infections are difficult to treat because of the poor drug penetration. To overcome this, current studies indicate that liposomes can deliver antibiotics with better activity. However, liposomal products have low drug concentrations, poor drug retention, and rapid release. Therefore, a hybrid system comprising a DNA nanogel trapped within a liposome was developed for antibiotic delivery to address this problem.
