Antibiotics are our primary defense against bacterial infections, but the emergence of antibiotic resistance bacteria has severely diminished the effectiveness of antibiotics therapies. Thus, a dire need exists for the discovery and development of non-antibiotic based bacterial infection treatments.This special issue will explore non-antibiotic treatments against bacterial infection by focusing on recent advances and problems in vaccines and other antibody based therapies against bacterial infection.
