Fighting deadly drug resistant bacteria in intestines with new antibiotic

Added: 18.01.2019 22:18 | 3 views | 0 comments

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a potentially deadly infection in the large intestine most common in people who need to take antibiotics for a long period of time, particularly in Australia's ageing population. But when doses of a new antibiotic called Ramizol were given to hamsters infected with a lethal dose of the bacteria, a significant proportion of hamsters survived the infection.
