Andrew Beckley's abstract: The development of resistance to some antibiotics may cause pathogens to become sensitive to other antibiotics in a phenomenon known as collateral sensitivity. Alternating between collaterally sensitive antibiotics has been proposed as a means to reverse resistance, yet clinical implementation has not been successful.
