Trio of Antibiotics Effective Against E.coli

Antibiotics are given either to treat bacterial infections or to prevent them. Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria undergo changes so that drugs, and other agents used against them become ineffective. The bacteria, thus become antibiotic-resistant and survive and continue to proliferate, further harming the individual. Researchers at the University at Buffalo have put together a team of three antibiotics that, together, are capable of wiping out the deadly bacterium, E.coli.
