Latest Findings: Researchers in Canada showed how cranberry extract rich in a particular type of compound successfully disrupted cell-to-cell communication in bacteria responsible for hard-to-treat infections. Earlier studies have already shown that cranberries contain proanthocyanidins (PACs), a class of compound that fends off illness through various antibacterial properties.

The research focuses on a bacterium called Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which can cause infections in hospital patients and people with weak immune systems. The researchers discuss the relevance of their findings to the problem of drug resistance. They found that while the cranberry PACs disrupted bacterial quorum sensing, this did not kill the cells - it just disrupted their communication and spread.
