Bacteriophages: An Alternative to Antibiotics?
Code Number: AU99015
Bacterial resistance to antibiotics has become a serious
medical problem. Treatment with bacteriophages might pose an

outside the former Soviet Union. The development of phage therapies
exemplifies positive as well as negative implications for
scientific development that is restricted in its access to the
mainstream, English-language dominated scientific community.
