Symposium explores antibiotic-resistant bacteria: sources and strategies

Resistance to the antibiotic vancomycin in enterococci, a class of bacteria, has spread rapidly in the past ten years-causing a large number of hospital-acquired infections. Vancomycin is one of the last antibiotics that can be used to treat infections caused by multiple-resistant staphylococcus aureus and other harmful bacteria. In two symposia, cosponsored by the ACS divisions of organic chemistry and medicinal chemistry, leading researchers will examine the structure of vancomycin--and look at how and where antibiotic-resistant strains develop, and how to prevent their spread.
