Just say NO to biofilms: NO-donors are used to disperse a bacterial biofilm so that co-administered antibiotics will kill the more susceptible unattached cells. The chemically stable cephalosporin-3'-diazeniumdiolate NO-donor prodrug (see scheme) is activated by bacterial β-lactamases and facilitates this two-step biofilm erradication.
