Pathogens developing resistance to antibiotics are among the gravest threats to modern medicine, according to the World Health Organization; but new research may have found a way to help doctors fight such germs.
Researchers at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem say they have found a simple method for measuring a bacteria’s tolerance, or the time it takes to kill a bacterial population. This will enable clinicians to more effectively treat strains that are on their path to becoming resistant, the researchers say.
I pray this works.
