Researchers are keen on the idea of sustainable, effective alternatives to antibiotics.
In a proof-of-concept, researchers used CRISPR/Cas to erase genes that make E. Coli resistant to antibiotics.
Use the right antibiotics at the right time can force the bacteria into a pre-resistant state.
But antibiotic overuse isn't off the hook.
But there’s no need to worry just yet.
The plan missing one of the biggest contributors to antibiotic resistance: routine use of antibiotics for disease prevention in farm animals.
Most likely, yes.
The fast food giant is phasing out human antibiotics in its chickens, a move that will help slow the growth of antibiotic-resistant superbugs.
Antibiotic resistant infections are scarier than ever, but many pharmaceutical companies are neglecting antibiotics R&D. A new editorial proposes some solutions.
Another piece in the antibiotic resistance puzzle.
