Increasing resistance of microorganisms to antibiotics has encouraged researchers to seek alternative antimicrobial therapy. The review studies the prospects for using bacteriocins as antibacterial drugs. The definition of bacteriocins is given and their difference from traditional antibiotics is explained. The modern classification of bacteriocins, their properties and mechanisms of action are presented. Examples of the main bacteriocin-producing bacteria representing normal human microbiota are given. The authors investigate the role of bacteriocins produced by microbiota in maintaining mucosal resistance and stabilizing the human microbiome as well as the possibility of their application in creating probiotic drugs. The advantages and disadvantages of bacteriocins as alternative antibacterial drugs are described. The applications of bacteriocins in antimicrobial therapy, as well as methods for their industrial manufacturing, are discussed.
