[Perspective] Fighting the enemy within
The dynamic microbiota that populate all human body surfaces affect health and disease in complex and often subtle ways.

To counter this rise, research and development efforts must target not only new broad-spectrum antibiotics, but also decolonization agents that disrupt the major endogenous reservoirs of a...
