Bacteriophages as antibacterial therapies


 One reason form looking closely at bacteriophages is due to the rise in multi-drug antimicrobial resistance among pathogenic bacteria. This rise in resistance and the associated challenges in finding alternative compounds has led to a growth in interest in alternatives. Among the alternatives are bacteriophages; an interest that stems from their special characteristics, including widespread distribution, self-replication, and a lack of effects on the host. This article assesses current research.

Tim Sandle has written a review arricle about bacteriophage research, for Pharmig News #83 (pp14-17).
