    New results from Momentum researchers in the description of pathogens resistant to antibiotics

    Bacteria can adapt within a short span of time to antibiotics, consequently they become resistant to a number of other medicaments, the members of two Momentum research teams led by Balázs Papp and Csaba Pál in the BRC respectively have stated. Their results published in the prominent journal Nature Communications may also help develop more efficient pharmaceuticals.
