Bacterial Persister, a Formidable Challenge in Therapeutics

Antibiotics are effective compounds in combating bacterial infections. However, with the widespread usage of antibiotics, two severe challenges were emerged to public health: bacterial drug resistance and tolerance. The formation of persisters often results in chronic and recurrent infections leading to more suffering and burden for patients. In comparison with studies of bacterial drug resistance, the nature of persisters and the mechanisms of their drug tolerance have remained more elusive.
