Uncovering Drug Targets for Urinary Tract Infections | GenomeWeb

The Escherichia coli behind recurrent urinary tract infections produce higher levels of iron-scavenging siderophores than non-disease-causing E. coli. Using a metabolomic approach, Jeffrey Henderson and his colleagues at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found that disease-causing E. coli generate more salmochelin and yersiniabactin, presenting possible new avenues to treat recurrent UTIs.
