New technique allows for identification of potential drugs to fight resistant bacteria

Researchers have optimized a new technique that will allow scientists to evaluate how potential inhibitors work on antibiotic-resistant bacteria. This technique, called native state mass spectrometry, provides a quick way for scientists to identify the best candidates for effective clinical drugs, particularly in cases where bacteria can no longer be treated with antibiotics alone. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2021/06/210620104208.htm
