Scientists at Cambridge are developing a lab-in-a-briefcase for rapidly and cheaply identifying disease-causing bacteria.
As antimicrobial resistance increases, the options for treating serious infections dwindle. Doctors need reliable information about which treatments to try out.
Half of all patients who died of COVID-19 in Wuhan had a secondary infection.
A new report estimates that by 2050, 40 per cent of all infections will be resistant to antimicrobial treatment. This will directly cause 13,700 previously preventable deaths.
New study proves that asking doctors to prescribe fewer antibiotics won't work.
New technology could help doctors identify the right antibiotic for their patient in double-quick time.
Bacteria are becoming resistant to even the most powerful antibiotics. These expensive, hard-to-treat infections are prompting physicians to reassess using viruses to destroy bacteria.
New research suggests that raising public awareness about antimicrobial resistance may have unintended consequences.
The problem of antimicrobial resistance won't go away as long as people in poor countries don't have access to clean water.
Bacteria don't just mutate to beat antibiotics, they also make changes on the fly.
