Scientists say new research into the behaviour of superbug bacteria could help prevent life-threatening infections forming on medically implanted devices.
Drug-resistant bacteria such as golden staph can cause infections on devices like catheters, pacemakers and joint replacements that are notoriously difficult to treat.
A team of researchers from Sydney’s University of Technology say they have discovered how the bacteria behaves and why it spreads so quickly.
The research has just been published in the prestigious US journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. — via redwolf.newsvine.com
