Maggots could fight MRSA5th August 2008
Scientists working at Swansea University have said that maggots could help to fight the superbug MRSA.
They are studying the effects of an antibiotic made by liquid which is produced by the green bottle fly. Professor Norman Ratcliffe, a principal researcher on the project, said: "It has been a huge team effort to get to this level and I am delighted with our progress. However there is more to do if we are to realise the maximum benefits from this discovery."
