New Cell Research Model Shows Promise Against P. Aeruginosa

A combination of bacteria-infecting viruses and antibiotics can be used to effectively protect lung cells against infection by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a bacteria that commonly causes lung infections in people with cystic fibrosis (CF), according to a study led by researchers at the University of Geneva (UNIGE). The model used to test this therapeutic approach — combining P. aeruginosa and epithelial lung cells in a laboratory setting — has been awarded the UNIGE 3R prize, which distinguishes UNIGE…
