New ‘bacteria-phobic’ material could stop the spread of superbugs in hospitals
The creation of a new ‘biomaterial’ that stops bacteria sticking to medical devices such as catheters could help in the fight against superbugs.
Researchers at Nottingham University have developed a new family of biomaterials – materials such as plastics and metals which can be introduced into the body – called Bactigon, which they hope will have a major impact against antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
