Drug-resistant tuberculosis reversed in lab
from Washington University School of Medicine via ScienceDaily
About 1.5 million people died of tuberculosis in 2017, making it the most lethal infectious disease worldwide. A growing rise in drug-resistant tuberculosis is a major obstacle to successfully treating the illness. Now, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Umea University in Sweden have found a compound that prevents and even reverses resistance to isoniazid, the most widely used antibiotic for treating tuberculosis.
