Bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics. Why and how is antibiotic resistance happening, and in turn how is it affecting patients?
Superbugs - germs that have evolved to become resistant to antibiotics and other medical treatments - are on the loose, infecting more than 2 million people in the U.S. every year.
Wielding Nature’s Sword: Researchers at Texas A&M discover new treatments against drug-resistant infections
Since World War II, antibiotics have been our only defense against bacterial infection, but overuse and misuse have caused some bacteria to develop resistance to antibiotics. Now, researchers at Texas A&M Health Science Center have discovered an entirely new class of antimicrobials that have the potential to kill drug-resistant bacteria.
