US scientists have developed antibiotics that can “shape-shift”, which prevent bacteria from coming resistant against them.

A single change to the structure of bacterial ribosomes prevents macrolide antibiotics from binding and killing the bacteria, according to a study.
Altering the mastoparan-L (mast-L) peptide found in Vespula lewisii wasp venom, researchers created several novel antimicrobial molecules.
Researchers have engineered F12, a lysin-based antibacterial drug, to have limited negative side-effects and so it can be administered repeatedly without loss of efficacy.
Scientists suggest competence-blocking, ‘anti-evolution’ drugs could be administered alongside antibiotics to prolong the period before bacterial resistance emerges.
Researchers have developed a novel metal-based fragment library of molecules that can be used to screen for new drug candidates.
Researchers have identified the mechanism by which thanatin attacks the way the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria is built...
Researchers have shown that it is possible to identify genetic catalysts that accelerate the evolution of antibiotic resistance in bacteria...
