Antibiotics can boost bacterial growth , Says Scientist
« on: February 01, 2017, 03:05:53 PM »

We have long known that bacteria can become resistant to antibiotics. Now, British researchers have found that germs multiply much faster after becoming resistant, than they did before.

Researchers at the University of Exeter exposed Escherichia coli (also known as E.coli) bacteria to eight rounds of antibiotic treatment over a period of four days.
In the process, the germs, which usually cause stomach pain and diarrhea and in worse cases kidney failure, increased antibiotic resistance with each treatment.

This was a mutation the scientists expected. What they were not prepared for was the observed speed with which the resistant germs multiplied after being treated. In one case the bacteria populations grew three times as big as in the case of normal E.coli bacteria within the same timeframe.
