How to treat untreatable gonorrhoea

This project uses knowledge recently gained about how gonorrhoea bacteria cause disease to develop new treatments that better control infections.

Lead organisation(s):

Monash University

Project type:
In progress

Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the etiological agents of gonorrhoea, is now resistant to all available antibiotics. In the last 3 years, we have discovered how Neisseria bacteria escape the immune system to cause disease. We are now focused on harnessing this knowledge to develop new options that activate the immune system to control infections.

Three years.
