British university makes antibiotic resistance breakthrough
Scientists at a British university have claimed a breakthrough in the race to beat the global health threat of antibiotic resistance.
In research that could pave the way for an entirely new class of drugs to combat highly resistant “superbugs”, the scientists say they have found the “Achilles heel” of a major group of bacteria which includes E.coli and other potentially deadly species.
