Learn more about the top news stories of the week in our round-up, including the latest research on influenza, and new findings in MRSA infection.
Researchers have revealed that frequent recurrences of MRSA infection in mouse models may be due to bacterial toxins that ‘kill’ lymphatic muscle cells, effectively impairing their ability to pump lymphatic fluid to the lymph nodes.
Mark Blaskovich gives us his thoughts on a recent study he led, published in Nature Communications, where the team re-engineered existing antibiotics to make them more powerful.
