    Making superbugs vulnerable to existing antibiotics...
    :cool:
    Scientists Find New Strategy Against Drug-Resistant Superbugs
    February 07, 2013 - Scientists may have found an effective new weapon against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. They did not create a new drug to kill these microbes; instead, they found a way to interfere with the metabolism of the extra-hardy bacterium - E. coli in this case - so that the germs became more vulnerable to existing antibiotics.

    New Antibiotic Offers Hope Against Resistant Bugs
    January 07, 2015 ~ International public health officials have expressed alarm that once highly-effective antibiotics, developed in some cases more than 50 years ago, are losing the war against dangerous infections, allowing once treatable diseases to grow into deadly illnesses worldwide — so-called "superbugs."
