Weaponizing oxygen to kill infections and disease

Posted: 19 Aug 2018 01:07 PM PDT

The life-threatening bacteria MRSA can cripple a medical facility since it is resistant to treatment. But scientists report that they are now making advances in a new technique that avoids antibiotics, instead using light to activate oxygen, which wipes out bacteria. The method also could be used to treat other microbial infections, and possibly even cancer.


A paper battery powered by bacteria
