Anti-superbug pyjamas on sale29th November 2007
Special silver-lined pyjamas designed to protect against the hospital superbug MRSA have gone on sale in the UK.
Silver is known for its infection-fighting properties and silver-laced nightwear has already been tested in a handful of hospitals. Experts say that the pyjamas would reduce the risk of a patient getting a skin infection that enters a wound. However, campaigners have called the pyjamas a gimmick and say the only way to tackle MRSA was by making hospitals cleaner. The Sleep Safe pyjamas cost £45 and are being trialled by M&S at 100 stores.
