Superbugs are one of the most worrisome of all the modern medical scourges. These antibiotic-resistant bacteria are plentiful, resulting in more than 2 million illnesses annually, according to the Harvard School of Medicine.
To improve the medical community’s odds of effectively combating these superbugs, researchers across the globe have developed a number of new and innovative techniques. For instance, a team from Columbia University has used specialized UV light to destroy the bacteria. Meanwhile, a group from the U.K. found that chemical manipulation can impede this bacteria.
A PhD student at the University of Melbourne has recently unveiled another exciting form of therapy that can prevent wound infections. And while this new method is still in the early stages, it is already being heralded as having the potential to change the entire scope of modern medicine, as The Telegraph reported.
