Infection with the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus can cause many health problems, including sepsis. Certain strains of this bacterium are resistant to antibiotics, so they are particularly dangerous. However, researchers discover that a probiotic bacterium can destroy this superbug.
Researchers are now investigating the potential of a probiotic bacterium in treating MRSA infections.
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is highly resistant to treatment with antibiotics.
These include oxacillin, flucloxacillin, and dicloxacillin.
