  • Abstract
    • "In ten years' time, will antibiotics still work? Have we let bacteria get the upper hand in the evolutionary arms race?
    • In the 1920s the discovery of the antibiotic penicillin started a golden age of medicine. However, experts warn that the end of that age may be just a decade away. In this BWB Text, microbiologist Siouxsie Wiles explores the looming crisis of antibiotic resistance and its threat to New Zealand. Wiles concludes that New Zealand must do more to protect the public from a future without antibiotics."--Back cover.
