Scientists ’on brink of cure’ for superbug

The Independent, May 22, 2008
Scientists have developed a drug that they say could be cure for MRSA. A British research firm claims that their discovery represented a "major breakthrough" in the battle against MRSA, a superbug responsible for the deaths of more than 1,600 patients in the UK every year. The firm, Destiny Pharma, is already carrying out human trials on the drug, and hopes to make the drug available in hospitals within three years.
