New means to fight 'un-killable' bacteria in healthcare settings: Canadian scientists identify new cellular target to weaken P. aeruginosa -- a severe threat to patients with cystic fibrosis -
Scientists at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) have identified new means of fighting drug-tolerant bacteria, a growing global threat as menacing as drug-resistant microbes. The team's findings are published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). This is critical if we want to improve the efficacy of our antibiotics and prevent such treatments from failing. P aeruginosa lung infection, is the leading cause of death for thousands of people living with cystic fibrosis.
