Tetracycline is an antibiotic drug used to treat infection.
Jacqueline Kimmey speaks to AZoLifeSciences about her research into bacterial pneumonia and the genes that drive its spread from the lungs into the blood.
New research reveals current understanding of safe antibiotic levels in rivers may not prevent evolution of antibiotic resistance and fully protect human health. The study suggests the need to introduce thresholds to help fight the spread of resistant bacteria.
Bird poop may pose more health risks than people realize, according to Rice University environmental engineers who study antibiotic resistance.
The latest generation of tetracyclines - a class of powerful, first-line antibiotics - was designed to thwart the two most common ways bacteria resist such drugs.
Although antibiotics are known to save lives, their use also supports the evolution and spread of antibiotic-resistant strains.
