The science world is freaking out over this 25-year-old's answer to antibiotic resistance

Shared by:

A 25-year-old student has just come up with a way to fight drug-resistant superbugs without antibiotics.

That is pretty cool. Now I just want to drop everything and get into that field myself. hehe. I do love where advancement in medicine is going. Seeing as bacteria as MRSA are becoming more resistant the answer is to divert from treating it with antibiotics as they will eventually be resistant to it as well. I am not saying though that we should make more antibiotics, seeing as nanotechnology won't be accessible or affordable to all nations, but we should look at other options as well. ...

It is really a super discovery for super bugs. Antibiotic resistance is a global issue at the spot because above 50 % bacterial infections cannot be completely eradicated with antibiotics rather it results in antibiotic resistance. When antibiotic resistance is developed bacteria grow in the body in the more dangerous way. Shu Lam’s development of star-shaped polymer may helpful in killing bacterial strains in more effective way. this polymer will kill the microbes by ripping apart their cell wa...

I am not sure what is more astonishing about this article. Whether it is the fact that a Phd student who is merely 25 years old making such a great discovery. Or if it is the fact that killing drug resistant bacteria is possible with such a non-complex technology. Super bugs have caught a lot of attention in the past few years. It has created so much discussion that there even was a world summit on fighting antibiotic resistance. I thing the results of these efforts are now starting to emerge in...
