Coagulation factors, which normally function to clot blood, have been demonstrated to have antibacterial action against Gram-negative bacteria in vitro and in mouse models.

Multidrug resistance to two antimalarials, used in combination as a first-line therapy, has been found using genomic surveillance to be rapidly spreading throughout Asia.
In this infographic we give you a visual snapshot of the antibiotics introduced for gonorrhea and a timeline of when resistance was first identified, in addition to setting out some of the primary resistance mechanisms.
ASM Microbe: Sustained transmission of resistant bacterial strain detected in hospital for over 3 years
A team of researchers have demonstrated the transmission of a single bacterial strain that possessed a carbapenem-resistance gene, using whole-genome sequencing.
An in vitro study has identified potent antibiotic properties possessed by cannabidiol, discovering activity against Gram-positive bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pneumoniae.
Researchers have shown that plant-foods, not just meats, can contribute to the transmission of antibiotic resistance to the gut microbiome.
Scientists at California State University, Fresno have identified multidrug resistance in six probiotic Bacillus strains to several antibiotics through genetic analysis.
Take a look at our latest infographic where Annabelle Lopez explains what antibiotics are, how resistance occcurs and what the consequences might be without any action.
Phage therapy using genetically engineered bacteriophages has treated a 15-year-old girl who developed a drug-resistant infection following a lung transplant, as outlined in Nature Medicine.
Antibiotic tolerance significantly reduces antibiotic efficacy and contributes to treatment failure; targeting both antibiotic tolerance and antibiotic resistance is critical to develop new antimicrobial strategies that will successfully eradicate hard-to-treat infections.
