While pathogenic bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics, researchers at our institute have studied the therapeutic potential of ruminococcin C, a naturally occurring peptide. In addition to its original structure and mode of action, they show that this antibiotic is not toxic to human cells while it is active against particularly harmful bacteria, without inducing resistance.
