Faced with an unprecedented E. coli outbreak, a team of German doctors is trying something equally new: an antibiotic therapy that some fear could do more harm than good.
The World Health Organization on Friday cautioned people against taking antibiotics if they fall ill from the E. coli outbreak that began in Germany last month.
Existing rapid testing kits for E. coli don't currently detect the new strain, which until recently had only been found in isolated instances and not large-scale outbreaks, she said.
"If there are particular cases in which that's what the bedside physician has deemed appropriate, then there would probably be good reasons for that," Ellis said.
