1,000-year-old potion shows promise against MRSA


MRSA has become one of the deadliest bacteria of modern times. The cause of more than 80,000 severe infections in the US every year, the "superbug" has evolved to develop resistance to many antibiotics that once killed it. But researchers from the University of Nottingham in the UK say they may have uncovered a new treatment for MRSA: a 1,000-year-old remedy for eye infections taken from a manuscript found in the British Library.
