For years, pathogens' resistance to antibiotics has put them one step ahead of researchers, which is causing a public health crisis. But now scientists have discovered a new antibiotic that eliminates pathogens without encountering any detectable resistance -- a finding that challenges long-held scientific beliefs and holds great promise for treating chronic infections like tuberculosis and those caused by MRSA.
Yes, this is pretty awesome. They plan on modifying these germs to soon produce toxins that can kill gram positive germs more effectively too. Apparently it's more effective against diderms; but yes, this is very exciting. It may take between to 3 to 5 years before human trails "officially" begin. :-) I'll looking closely at these developments. Thanks!
3 to 5 years for trials to begin. I might not last long enough to benefit.
Very good news!
