Abstract Staphylococcus aureus is a prevalent cause of bacterial infections associated with indwelling medical devices. RNA III inhibiting peptide (RIP) is known to inhibit S. aureus pathogenesis by disrupting quorum-sensing mechanisms. RIP was tested in the present study for its ability to inhibit S. aureus biofilm formation in a rat Dacron graft model. The activity of RIP was synergistic with those of antibiotics for the complete prevention of drug-resistant S. aureus infections.
