Antibiotics

Only 90 years have passed since the discovery of the fungal compound effective against bacteria to the production of synthetic antibiotics. During this time, formerly dangerous medical treatments and diseases became possible or curable. The downside of the success of antibiotically active substances is their natural counterpart - evolution. The development of resistance in bacterial strains is the greatest challenge facing 21st century medicine.

  • Bacterial 'sleeper cells' evade antibiotics and weaken defense against infection

    New research, from scientists at Imperial College London, unravels how so-called bacterial persister cells manipulate our immune cells, potentially opening new avenues to finding ways of clearing these bacterial cells from the body, and stopping recurrence of the bacterial infection. The latest find more

  • Insect Antibiotic Provides New Way to Eliminate Bacteria

    An antibiotic called thanatin attacks the way the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria is built. Researchers at the University of Zurich have now found out that this happens through a previously unknown mechanism.
