To: null and void

I blame the FDA. It shouldn’t take 20 years to get a new antibiotic approved, especially if it is a slight variation on an existing molecule. We can and should “evolve” new antibiotic defenses at least as rapidly as our microbial adversaries evolve defenses against what we are already throwing at them.

Agreed. And if we want a new “medical revolution” or jobs program, and help the world at the same time, it would be to open up and fully fund antibiotics research. A war on disease, so that we don’t go back to the solutions of the pre-antibiotic era because all the antibiotics are useless.
