      Can any one direct me to a webpage or something that can tell me more about how phage therapy is being used on MRSA. I thought it was a new way to treat resistant pathogens but I read one thing somewhere (can’t seem to find my way back there) that lead me to believe that it has been used for quite some time. Also, I know there are two new antibiotics that are in use to treat these organisms but I am wondering how long it will be before the staph and enterococcus will be resistant to them too. Are they just buying us time?

      Any thoughts along these lines would be appreciated!

      Thanks,
