Technology Overview

Antibiotic resistance is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. New resistance mechanisms are emerging and spreading globally, threatening our ability to treat common infectious diseases. A growing list of infections – such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, blood poisoning, gonorrhea, and foodborne diseases – are becoming harder, and sometimes impossible, to treat as antibiotics become less effective. Without urgent action, we are heading for a post-antibiotic era, in which common infections and minor injuries can once again kill.

Antibiotic resistance will remain a major threat to public health unless alternative antimicrobial therapies are developed.
