Race for new antibiotics: future success is hanging by a thread

  29 January 2020

It’s been four decades since we’ve had a new class of antibiotics. Yet across the world, the number of people suffering from drug-resistant infections continues to rise at an alarming rate.

The world desperately needs new antibiotics – they are the foundation of modern medicine.

Without new antibiotics, infections like blood poisoning, gonorrhoea and urinary tract infections risk becoming untreatable. More people will suffer fatal complications from routine medical procedures like chemotherapy or organ transplants.
