Monash University leads breakthrough against antibiotic-resistance
A major risk of being hospitalised is catching a bacterial infection.
Hospitals, especially areas including intensive care units and surgical wards, are teeming with bacteria, some of which are resistant to antibiotics – they are infamously known as ‘superbugs’.
Superbug infections are difficult and expensive to treat, and can often lead to dire consequences for the patient.
Now, new research published today in the prestigious journal Nature Microbiology has discovered how to revert antibiotic-resistance in one of the most dangerous superbugs.
The strategy involves the use of bacteriophages (also known as ‘phages’).
