This year marks the 100th anniversary of the discovery of bacteriophages and the 10th anniversary of establishment of our Phage Therapy Unit, the only such center in EU countries. The current drama of antibiotic resistance and lack of significant progress in the development of new and efficacious antibacterials highlights the importance of our unit addressing this great medical and social challenge. During 10 years of our operation we have confirmed the safety of phage therapy in humans and provided a scientific and ethical rationale for its further development, planning and conduct of clinical trials that could formally confirm its clinical value. To salute both anniversaries, the Hirszfeld Institute is organizing an international conference, “Clinical Phage Therapy 2015”, hoping that it will attract attention of students, physicians and scientists who would continue this work and contribute to further advances in this exciting field of science and medicine.
