Can cancer drugs make bacteria antibiotic resistant?
Antibiotic resistance is what happens when the drugs we use to kill bacteria stop working, and it is a big threat to global health worldwide. In my research I have aimed to answer the question if drugs used in cancer chemotherapy can cause bacteria to become resistant towards antibiotics and if so, how they do it. The short answer is yes, some cancer drugs can change the bacteria to make it so.
