Researchers Nanoengineer Kryptonite For Antibiotic Resistant Superbugs

Researchers have created a nano-engineered peptide that is kryptonite for superbugs The peptide destroys drug resistant bacteria and does not harm healthy tissue. Even after 600 generations of exposure, bacteria do not develop resistance to the peptide.
