Bid to beat superbugs boosted by immune defense discovery
from University of Edinburgh via ScienceDaily
The fight against superbugs could be helped by the discovery of a potential therapy based on the body's natural immune defences. Scientists have found that a molecule produced by the body — called LL-37 — changes the way cells behave when they are invaded by bacteria. The molecule acts like a fire alarm, experts say, warning the body's immune system of the infection and the need for urgent action.
