Penetrating Protein Battles Drug-Resistant Bacteria

A new antibacterial agent could be a promising addition to humanity's arsenal in the ongoing battle against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. In findings published January 10 in Science Translational Medicine, the new compound even eradicated stubborn pathogens growing together in tough-to-treat microbial mats called biofilms, which are complex communities that can be 10 to 1,000 times more tolerant to antibiotics than free-living bacteria.
