Healthcare professionals everywhere are fighting a merciless battle.
The enemy is antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Nosocomial infections, like MRSA, are becoming increasingly resistant and scientists are desperately searching for solutions. They’re experimenting with a wide range of interventions—from wavelengths of UV light to phages.
Researchers estimate that 1.7 million healthcare-associated infections occur each year, adding up to a staggering cost of $45 billion.1 As we can’t rely on antibiotics to fight back, it’s becoming more evident that the best way to fight infections is to prevent them in the first place.
