Study Shows Promising Therapy for Drug-Resistant Klebsiella Pneumoniae

A promising strategy to tame troublesome drug-resistant bacteria is bacteriophage, or phage therapy, which uses viruses instead of antibiotics. NIH scientists have used two different bacteriophage viruses individually and then together to successfully treat research mice infected with multidrug-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae sequence type 258 (ST258).
