I've been known to post here before occasionally on bacterial resistance to antibiotics - it's one of my things - but this is verrry interesting to me (though probably not to you!):
It involves the use of a peptide (a short-chain mini-protein, basically) to disrupt the formation of bacterial biofilms (layers formed by bacteria on skin / flesh / surfaces - the root cause of most infections). ome very promising results from these experiments that might lead to new routes for fighting infections caused by multi-drug-resistant ESKAPE pathogens - you know, MRSA, etc - all that scary stuff in the news.
