Antibiotic-resistance bacteria research gets funding8th February 2012
The government has announced it is to provide half a million pounds to fund research into bacteria that resist treatment with antibiotics.
Professor Dame Sally Davies, the DH Chief Medical Officer and Chief Scientific Adviser, said: "We are committed to preventing and treating infections effectively so we can give high quality care to patients. That is why we are calling for research proposals into the resistance caused by extended spectrum Beta lactamases. We welcome this report into ESBL-producing bacteria by our expert committees and I am looking forward to seeing exciting new research proposals in this important area."
