In the last 5 years our work has been aimed at understanding the mechanisms by which bacteria adapt against different stress, such as antibiotic treatment and we elucidated that it is a multifactorial phenomenon. Given the complexity of Clostridium difficile infections, and their antibiotic tolerance, we aimed to undertake a challenging angle in C. difficile pathogenesis: determine the role of Toxin-Antitoxin systems in C. difficile antibiotic tolerance and implications in recurrent infection.
