Chronic Infections Unmasked by New Scientific Method, University of Copenhagen Study
8/10/2012 7:44:39 AM
With the aid of tiny silicon tubes and one of Europe's most sophisticated centres for microscopy, scientists have been able for the first time to observe directly bacteria in chronic infections. Researchers can now see precisely how bacteria and the immune system interact in living tissue. This opens the potential for developing new medicine to fight resistant bacteria. The results have recently been published in the scientific journal Infection and Immunity.
