Phage Therapy success story! Inspirational!

We just received this article about a young girl who was likely dying due to a lung infection "similar to TB" and phage therapy was a success.  Enjoy this one,   Nancy      Thanks Jude for finding this one!!

interesting for several reasons. 1. it gives names of drs to contact in Pittsburgh and Texas A &M who work with phages 2. it sounds like it might have been MAC she has, as it described the bacteria as “similar to TB”.
