“…Speak with any antibiotics researcher for long enough about finding a new antibiotic class and they will definitely use the words ‘holy grail’; it’s a nod to how wondrous such an event would be, but it’s also a concession that, even at the most optimistic timelines, it is beyond the reach of today’s jobbing doctors, who need it most. A more immediate solution is to try to eke out the life of existing antibiotics…” (Mohammadi, 7/19).
