The rising threat of multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria is exacerbated by the scarcity of new antibiotics in the development pipeline. Permeability through the outer membrane remains one of the leading hurdles in discovery efforts. However, the essentiality of a robust outer membrane makes itself an intriguing antimicrobial target. Herein, we review drug discovery efforts targeting the outer membrane and the prospective antimicrobial leads identified.
