Abstract

Bacteriophages were advocated as therapeutic agents more than a century ago, but the advent of antibiotics relegated them to a very minor role. Today, multi-drug resistant bacteria are a serious health problem, and phage therapy enjoys renewed interest. Recent publications show that it can be effective, but also highlight the serious logistic problems involved in using this approach.
