2 New Ways To Kill TB

March 22, 2010

Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have found two novel ways of killing the bacteria that cause tuberculosis (TB), a disease responsible for an estimated two million deaths each year. The findings, published in the March 21 online issue of Nature Chemical Biology, could lead to a potent TB therapy that would also prevent resistant TB strains from developing. William R. Jacobs, Jr., professor of microbiology & immunology at Einstein, discusses his research that details two new ways to kill TB. Credit: Albert Einstein College of Medicine
