Currently, people are exposed to many harmful diseases. Therefore, there are many schemes, such as automation of productive facilities, development of information and communication technology, enhanced the quality of human life and wealth. However, these processes lead to weakened immune system. Thus, people are more vulnerable to infections from pathogens and environmental stress. Misuse and abuse of drugs resulted in the rapid emergence of multidrug-resistant microbes and tumors, therefore, to find new antibiotics are urgently needed. One of them is a peptide-antibiotic, that is not or less occurred a drug-resistance, comparing to conventional drugs. Peptides with various antibiotic activities have been identified from life organisms. The present review provides an overview of activities and application of peptide antibiotics.
