Multi-drug resistant infection spreading globally among cystic fibrosis patients

14-Nov-2016

A multi-drug resistant infection that can cause life-threatening illness in people with cystic fibrosis (CF) and can spread from patient to patient has spread globally and is becoming increasingly virulent, according to new research. The study, led by the University of Cambridge and the Wellcome ...
