New study of the molecular roots of recurrent bladder infections could lead to a vaccine

Urinary-tract infections are the second most common bacterial infection in humans, and many of them are recurrent. A study published by Cell Press on February 14th in the journal Immunity reveals the cellular and molecular basis of recurrent bladder infections and suggests possible treatment strategies, such as vaccines, to prevent this common problem.

“Our… New study of the molecular roots of recurrent bladder infections could lead to a vaccine
