EXPLOITING MILLIONS OF YEARS OF 

    PHAGE-BACTERIA EVOLUTION FOR          THE DEVELOPMENT OF NOVEL                THERAPEUTICS CALLED LYSINS

 Lysins are enzymes made by bacteriophages.    Lysins can      break down the bacterial cell wall in a matter of seconds,   Due    to  phage-bacteria coevolution, the chance of developing                resistance to  lysins is low.
