#TOTW from 01-09-15 ‘New antibiotic could transform Cdiff treatment’


A little later than usual due to me being on leave and doing other things!

Another brief, but extremely worthwhile of the extra coverage #TOTW:

New antibiotic could transform treatment

A report from BBC Scotland’s Ken MacDonald in which, “Scientists at Strathclyde University, who developed the antibiotic, say it is the first of a new class of drug that could transform the treatment of potentially fatal diseases.

Not only is this a good news story in relation to C.Diff, but it is also great in terms of the discovery of a new class of antibiotic – not something that happens often.

This is definitely something to be celebrated!

That is all!
