“Out-of-the-box” new method stops bacteria spreading antibiotic resistance – without killing them

“If we found an inhibitor, we could clean hospital surfaces with it and prevent the dissemination of drug resistance,” says Feldman. “This is an out-of-the-box idea, but it’s what we need. If we just find new antibiotics, the bacteria will just become resistant again. We need to find therapies that don’t kill the bacteria but prevent it from becoming drug-resistant, so we can continue using our antibiotics into the future.”
