Spread of antibiotic resistance in a mathematical model of gonorrhoea transmission (from ref. 1).

Spread of antibiotic resistance in a mathematical model of gonorrhoea transmission (from ref. 1).

The RApid Diagnosis of Antibiotic Resistance-Gonorrhoea (RADAR-Go) platform aims to develop individualised antibiotic treatment through rapid diagnostic test development integrated with mathematical modelling to predict impact.
