The article discusses the idea of innocuous bacteria being used to fight off urinary tract infection (UTIs) causing pathogens. It states that bacterial interference is a potentially powerful approach for preventing UTIs, but any antibiotics used during colonization would kill off the protective bacteria. A study has revealed bacterial interference's potential to reduce catheter-associated UTIs.
