The current study demonstrates that dihydropyrrolone (DHP)-coated polyacrylamide substrates are effective in reducing the number of culturable clinical isolates of S. aureus in vitro in a dose-dependent manner and are able to reduce the pathogenic potential of staphylococcal infection in a subcutaneous infection model. Covalently bound DHPs therefore show great potential for use as an antimicrobial strategy in device-related applications.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/101252
