Researchers unveil molecular details of how bacteria propagate antibiotic resistance
from Infection Control Today
Fighting superbugs – strains of pathogenic bacteria that are impervious to the antibiotics that subdued their predecessor generations – has required physicians to seek new and more powerful drugs for their arsenals. Unfortunately, in time, these treatments also can fall prey to the same microbial ability to become drug resistant. Now, a research team at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill may have found a way to break the cycle that doesn't demand the deployment of a next-generation medical therapy – preventing superbugs from genetically propagating drug resistance.
