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.

  • Tackling the collateral damage from antibiotics

    Antibiotics help us to treat bacterial infections and save millions of lives each year. But they can also harm the helpful microbes residing in our gut, weakening one of our body’s first lines of defence against pathogens and compromising the multiple beneficial effects our microbiota has for our he more

  • Filming antibiotic resistance in Slow-Motion

    Using the X-ray laser European XFEL an international team of researchers, including scientists from DESY, has successfully filmed a reaction step that is important for the development of antibiotic resistance. The molecular film captures the very rapid reaction of the enzyme beta-lactamase from tube more

  • Antibiotic levels measurable in breath for first time

    A team of engineers and biotechnologists at the University of Freiburg has for the first time shown in mammals that the concentration of antibiotics in the body can be determined using breath samples. The breath measurements also corresponded to the antibiotic concentrations in the blood. The team’s more
