2018-136: Use of bacteriophage-derived lysins in combatting multi-drug resistant (MDR) pathogens that cause bovine respiratory disease (BRD)

Researcher: Dongyan Niu

Funding: $45,774

1) Engineer a part of the bacteriophage (bacteria-killing viruses) to
specifically a􀄴ack the most drug-resistant pathogens.
2)Antimicrobial resistance is increasing, and it is difficult to treat some
bacteria common in bovine respiratory disease.
2) There has been success in mice and humans.


Waiting for research results.
