Oxygen could be the key in addressing antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as MRSA. In a new study, scientists design an effective photosensitizer that can trigger oxygen to kill MRSA and other bacteria.
10 infants confined at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of University of California, Irvine Medical Center were infected with the same strain of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
NASA and SpaceX want to accelerate the evolutionary process of MRSA to predict how it will act on Earth once the right "triggers" appeared.
Scientists are hoping microgravity will help them understand the ultra-lethal MRSA a bit better.
A weed commonly found in Florida could stop the deadly superbug on its track.
The dangerous superbug called Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) can now be transmitted to humans by consuming or even handling contaminated poultry, a new study reveals.
Scientists have discovered a natural antibiotic in the human nose, and this could be the solution for infection-causing bacteria.
Researchers discovered a new antibiotic produced by a bacterium living in the nose that is effective against MRSA in mouse models.
Staph is one of the most common causes of skin infections in the U.S. A strain of Staph, MRSA often causes mild to serious skin infections, which can lead pneumonia and bloodstream infections.
Staph is a "super bug" that, before now, couldn't be stopped. It includes Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and other forms.
Remedies from the Dark Ages certainly don't sound like trustworthy things. After all, they are from a time when healers slapped leeches on their patients and walked around warding off "evil smells," which were thought to be the root of infection. However, one potion has survived that may even help patients today, even overcoming resilient superbugs that antibiotics can no longer handle.
