Scientists Show How #Antibiotics Enable Pathogenic #Gut_Infections Sonnenburg said he thinks researchers may someday be able to find drugs that, co-administered with antibiotics, could inhibit the enzymes our friendly gut-bugs use to liberate sialic acid from intestinal mucus, so that a pathogen-nourishing spike doesn't occur. Alternatively, #probiotics in the form of bacterial strains that are especially talented at digesting sialic acid could achieve a similar effect.
