  • Gabriel Wu 17:23, 25 March 2013 (EDT): Is there a review (in English) of all these Russian studies?
    • Neil R Gottel 13:48, 26 March 2013 (EDT):Yep! Its my first reference. I'll make a note in the article about that.
  • Jeffrey E. Barrick 21:34, 25 March 2013 (EDT):Phage therapy turns up in early 20th century novel about science by Sinclair Lewis: Arrowsmith (not to be confused with Upton Sinclair of The Jungle).
    • Neil R Gottel 13:48, 26 March 2013 (EDT):Cool! Wikipedia says its the earliest novel to focus on scientific culture. We should discuss it at the inaugural meeting of the Barrick Lab Book Club.
  • Catherine I. Mortensen 14:43, 26 March 2013 (EDT):There's always a chance that bacteria can mutate and become resistant to antibiotics such as amoxicillin. What if viruses were used to reverse bacterial resistance to certain antibiotics in combination with antibiotics... so phage therapy and antibiotics used together. This would really kill a disease. Here's an article about reversing bacterial resistance to antibiotics [1]
