Using a mathematical model, researchers found that good hygiene can reduce the harmful effects of antibiotic use.
Nice recommends faecal transplants to treat antibiotic-resistant Clostridium difficile infections. The treatment has been used in the UK since 2013.
Most antibiotics work by killing bacteria. But this also helps them to become resistant. If we render bacteria harmless to us, rather than kill them, it’s a win-win.
Canada lags behind other developed countries in access to newer antimicrobials. Here’s why that matters, and what can be done about it.
After a nose swab tests positive for a virus or bacteria, scientists can use the sample’s genetic sequence to figure out where and when the pathogen emerged and how fast it’s changing.
Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest public health threats in the world. New research, however, may have found a way to keep up with rapidly evolving bacteria.
As the world has focused on the COVID-19 pandemic, other microbial foes are waging war on humans. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria pose a growing threat. But viruses may defeat them.
