The solution created by a Polish researcher`s team in Cambridge has already been tested on mice. This is an important step towards the treatment of an important group of metabolic diseases.
Researchers at the University of Warsaw have developed a system to detect genes that make bacteria resistant to antibiotics. They plan to make the system available to physicians so that they can quickly determine which types of antibiotics will most effectively help a particular patient, and which should be avoided.
