New class of antibiotics discovered

There’s some good news in the fight against ever-evolving bacteria and the resistance they’re building to common antibiotics (the ‘post-antibiotic era‘ we’re entering).  Researchers at the University of Notre Dame have discovered a new class of antibiotics (called oxadiazoles) that is proving effective against MRSA.  Of course, who knows how long it’ll take for MRSA to adapt and develop resistance…but for now, it’s great news.
