Healthy Living: Killing Superbugs
Each year, nearly 3 million people suffer from antibiotic-resistant infections.
Now, researchers are using tiny, nano-drills to penetrate the hard exteriors of bacteria molecules; enabling the precise delivery of antibiotics, aimed at saving lives.
Courtney Hunter explains in Healthy Living.
Companies are now putting money behind this research, meaning a faster track for FDA approval.
Jim Tour believes that if all goes as planned, this process of nano-drilling to kill bacteria will be available in about five years.
