Phagotherapy

A promising therapy

  • Antibiotics are designed to destroy or inhibit the growth of bacteria. Yet bacteria naturally have resistance mechanism, which has been reinforced over time by the excessive use, as it is still the case today, of antibiotics. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), antibiotic resistance is the number one priority for global health.
