Skin patch could thwart antibiotic resistance

Skin patch could thwart antibiotic resistance

With our greater reliance on antibiotics to help us overcome infections, it's encouraging to read of approaches that aim to extend the time before antibiotic resistance reduces their effectiveness: newatlas.com/antibiotic-mic...

This approach should also reduce the levels of antibiotics entering wastewater - hotspots for antibiotic resistant bacteria: abc.net.au/news/2016-09-22/... ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/233...

I'm very glad that the illustration of the skin patch is a scale model (like the living bee in my photo - courtesy of plants) and not to size!!
