It's World Antibiotic Awareness Week 2017. Bill Condie explores alternatives to antibiotic use to treat bacterial infections.
20 September: CO-ADD's Dr Johannes Zuegg, joins other experts in a live webinar discussing the hard task of finding new and effective antibiotics.
CO-ADD tests compounds against five of the top pathogens listed on the WHO priority list for R&D of new antibiotics: Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Staphylococcus aureus, as well as the fungi Cryptococcus neoformans and Candida albicans.
“We welcome the published list of priority pathogens to be worked on from the World Health Organization. Our research targets five of the pathogens listed, including the three most critical. This will be a vital tool that will guide antibiotic research and drug discovery for the future,” said CO-ADD Dr Mark Blaskovich.
