Abstract

The looming antibiotic resistance crisis is forcing clinicians to consider alternative approaches to treating bacterial infections. As the window of use for current antimicrobial agents becomes ever narrower, we consider if looking back will now be the way forward. Conceptually, phage therapy is simple and specific; a targeted treatment to control bacterial overgrowth. In this article we discuss bacteriophage and potential use in future therapy.
