We all know how terrifying antibiotic-resistant bacteria is. There's just no good way of fighting it, and it can lead to some seriously horrible things. The worst part is that the mutated bacteria is super easy to pick up — even at hospitals.
Luckily, there's a company called Galapagos that is testing a new class of antibiotics that will combat this type of super bacteria!! Though, it's only a matter of time until the bacteria mutates even stronger, right…?
Regardless, the company says their new drug is effective against MRSA, which is awful. It causes life-threatening infections, particularly for hospital patients.
They plan on moving to clinical tests in 2014 — not too far off!
Science is AMAZEBALLS!!
