Data from: Aggressive chemotherapy and the selection of drug resistant pathogens

Silvie Huijben, Andrew S. Bell, Derek G. Sim, Danielle Tomasello, Nicole Mideo, Troy Day & Andrew F. Read
Drug resistant pathogens are one of the key public health challenges of the 21st century. There is a widespread belief that resistance is best managed by using drugs to rapidly eliminate target pathogens from patients so as to minimize the probability that pathogens acquire resistance de novo. Yet strong drug pressure imposes intense selection in favor of resistance through alleviation of competition with wild-type populations. Aggressive chemotherapy thus generates opposing evolutionary forces which together determine...
