Picture a future where a simple cut to your finger could leave you fighting for your life. Where cancer treatments and organ transplants could kill you. And even the most basic operations – having an appendix removed or a hip replacement – could be deadly too. A future without antibiotics is unthinkable. But it could happen. Because the emergence and spread of drug-resistant pathogens has accelerated, while the pipeline for new anti-microbial drugs has all but run dry.
We’re breaking down resistance with an international network of medical and scientific professionals. Helperby is working hard to break that resistance, by pioneering a unique methodology which allows us to rejuvenate old antibiotics, making them useful once again in treating infectious diseases.
This site explains who we are, what we do and how our work is helping combat antibiotic resistant bacteria.
