1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

Treatment of prosthetic joint infections is very difficult, as these infections are refractory to antimicrobial therapy and need complex surgical procedure. The anti-virulence molecules, such as salicylic acid, savirin and ticagrelor, can be good options for development of adjuvant therapy that can enhance antibiotic treatment.
