MRSA Breakthrough May Spell the End for Drug-resistant Bacteria[Sep 28, 2018]

Researchers in Hong Kong believe they may have discovered a way to prevent superbugs mutating and beating antibiotics. Recent lab tests on mice show that those infected with CA-MRSA had a 40 percent survival rate after seven to 10 days. A separate group, injected with non-antibiotic M-21, Kao's breakthrough, all survived. The findings were published in July in the journal PNAS.
