Development of phage resistance in multidrug-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae is associated with reduced virulence: A case report of a personalised phage therapy
Phage-resistant bacteria often emerge rapidly when performing phage therapy. However, the relationship between the emergence of phage-resistant bacteria and improvement in clinical symptoms is still poorly understood.
This study may shed light on the mechanism by which some patients experience clinical improvement in their symptoms post phage therapy, despite the incomplete elimination of pathogenic bacteria.
