A variety of bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and
Staphylococcus epidermidis can survive in host cell, even in phagocystes (e.g. macrophages) after phagocytosis, causing intracellular infections. Treatment of this intracellular infections often fails due to the low intracellular efficacy of most conventional antimicrobials such as antibiotics. Thus, novel techniques that can improve intracellular efficacy of antibiotics are highly needed.
