A type of onion could help the fight against antibiotic resistance in cases of tuberculosis, a study has suggested.
Researchers believe the antibacterial properties extracted from the Persian shallot could increase the effects of existing antibiotic treatment.
They said this could help “reverse the tide” of drug-resistant TB, which infected 490,000 people in 2016.
But they said the research was still in its early stages and clinical trials would need to follow.
