Data from: Targeting antibiotic resistant bacteria with phages reduces bacterial density in an insect host

Lauri Mikonranta, Angus Buckling, Matti Jalasvuori & Ben Raymond
Phage therapy is attracting growing interest among clinicians as antibiotic resistance continues becoming harder to control. However, clinical trials and animal model studies on bacteriophage treatment are still scarce and results on the efficacy vary. Recent research suggests that using traditional antimicrobials in concert with phage could have desirable synergistic effects that hinder the evolution of resistance. Here, we present a novel insect gut model to study phage-antibiotic interaction in a system where antibiotic resistance...
