Cause of antibiotic resistance identified

Bacteria can change form in human body, hiding the cell wall inside themselves to avoid detection. The cell wall is often the antibiotic target – so if bacteria are concealing it inside themselves antibiotics have no target. New osmoprotective detection methods are needed to be used to identify any L-form bacteria. Research also showed that L-form bacteria can revert back to walled bacteria – within 5 hours.
