This approach to interpreting the... Read More
The use of antibiotics drives the emergence of drug resistance, but the relationship between the two is not always direct or easy to measure. Resistance may appear or disappear at significantly faster rates in some situations than others, and perhaps not at all during the period of a research study. These dynamics can be influenced by seemingly unrelated factors. Read More

As part of ongoing work to spur the creation of urgently needed new antibiotics, The Pew Charitable Trusts’ antibiotic resistance project and the World Health Organization (WHO) have both released new analyses of the pipeline of products in...
