Fascinating press release ("news story" from the Ottawa Business Journal [via corante]):
GangaGen is developing a phage-based drug that would kill off such harmful bacteria [O157:H7] in the guts of farm animals before they can even pose a risk to humans. Its sights are also set on salmonella and campylobacter.
The amusing part, aside from the obvious limitations of this approach, is the extensive discussion of phages without ever mentioning the word virus.
