Israeli researchers develop substance that attacks antibiotic-resistant germs

If used on a large scale, their method could change the nature of hospital-acquired infections 'toward being more susceptible to antibiotics rather than more resistant,' say researchers.

If used on a large scale, their method could change the nature of hospital-acquired infections "toward being more susceptible to antibiotics rather than more resistant," the researchers say in an article in this month's issue of Applied and Environment Microbiology, a journal published by the American Society for Microbiology.
