Abstract

The past year brought several discoveries that focused attention on antimicrobial peptides on epithelial surfaces. The malfunction of these substances was implicated as a cause of airway infections in cystic fibrosis. Other highlights included new insights into the relative selectivity of antimicrobial peptides for microbial membranes, their primary site of action.
