Phage Therapy 2023 Best Short Oral: Bacteriophage-Antibiotic Combination to Allow Liver Transplantation

The Targeting Phage Therapy 2023 Best Short Oral Presentation award was discerned to:

Bacteriophage-Antibiotic Combination Therapy Against Extensively Drug-Resistant Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Infection to Allow Liver Transplantation in a Toddler
Brieuc Van Nieuwenhuyse, UC Louvain

Dr. Van Nieuwenhuyse explained to Targeting Phage Therapy: “My research focuses on bidirectional translational research, trying to analyze specific mechanisms that have likely modulated phage therapy’s outcomes in former treated patients, and in turn trying to apply the conclusions of this research to the treatment protocol of future phage therapy patients. Current and future projects focus on exploring, inter alia, the clinical relevance of phage-antibiotic interactions, of phage immune neutralization, of bacterial phage resistance dynamics and induced phage co-evolution, and also on the contribution of specific phage features to their lytic power in mucus-rich environments.”
