The use of acridines
The use of acridines as antimicrobial agents was aboriginal proposed by Ehrlich and Benda in 1912, and the aboriginal analytic use of these agents occurred in 1917. Many compounds absolute the acridine chromophore were actinic and tested, and the aminoacridines begin advanced use, both as antibacterial agents and as antimalarials, during World War II. The actualization of the penicillins eclipsed the acridines in antisepsis due to the greater ameliorative efficacies of the former. However, with the accepted massive increases in drug-resistant bacterial infection, new acridine derivatives may be of use. In addition, the contemporary appliance of aminoacridines in affiliation with directed low-power ablaze offers antibacterial activity at abundant lower doses.
