Scientists identify new cellular target to weaken P. aeruginosa—a severe threat to patients with cystic fibrosis

Scientists at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) in Montreal have identified new means of fighting drug-tolerant bacteria, a growing global threat as menacing as drug-resistant microbes. Little is known about the mechanisms leading to tolerance, a strategy that makes bacteria 'indifferent' to antibiotics and almost 'un-killable,' which results in chronic infections extremely difficult to treat and cure.
