Uppsala on a mission to develop new antibiotics

Published onsdag 12 februari 2014 kl 10.15

Uppsala University will co-ordinate an EU-project aiming to develop a new type of antibiotics, Swedish Radio's Science Department reports. The project is funded by the EU and the pharmaceutical industry and will be running for six years.

This is a new way to try to kick-start scientific research in an area where only two new types of antibiotics have reached the market in the last 40 years. And it is getting urgent, as resistant bacteria are causing increasing problems at hospitals and in health care.

The project, called Innovative Medicines Initiative, will be working on an antibiotic to tackle bacteria like E.coli, klebsiella, pseudomonas och acinetobacter.
