Published in 30/3/2017
Two research groups from the Departments of Chemistry and Biology/CESAM of UA, which have been working for 10 years on the development of alternative strategies to antibiotics, have published an article in Future Medicinal Chemistry. As widely promoted in the media, the number of bacteria multiresistant to the current antibiotics that threatens global public health is increasing. In fact, these bacteria are currently responsible for more than 700 000 annual deaths, a number which, if nothing is done, could increase to 10 million deaths by 2050.
