Drug used to treat HIV might defuse deadly staph infections
from Infection Control Today
A new study by NYU School of Medicine researchers suggests that an existing HIV drug called maraviroc could be a potential therapy for Staphylococcus aureus, a pathogen linked to hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations each year. The discovery arose from a serendipitous finding that was a part of a collaborative study between an assistant professor of microbiology, a bacteriologist, and an associate professor of microbiology and pathology and medicine, whose laboratories are adjacent to each other.
