Discovery reveals antibiotic-resistant strep throat may be too close for comfort
(Houston Methodist) Infectious disease scientists identified strains of group A streptococcus that are less susceptible to commonly used antibiotics, a sign that the germ causing strep throat and flesh-eating disease may be moving closer to resistance to penicillin and other related antibiotics known as beta-lactams.

Here, the immune receptor, Mincle, was activated by exposure to components of GAS. Osaka University-led researchers found that DGDG, a glycolipid produced by GAS, inhibited activation of Mincle and contributed to immune evasion by GAS, suggesting it may be a useful target for curative and preventive therapies for GAS infections.
