New breakthrough could help thwart recurrent urinary tract infections  Mar 26, 10:32 am
Washington, March 26 (ANI): Researchers have shown that when chitosan - used in agriculture as a seed treatment and biopesticide - is given in conjunction with antibiotics, it assists the bladder in ridding itself of "reservoir" populations of bacteria that live in its deeper layers and potentially cause recurrent infections.
Researchers create first man-made 'living materials'  Mar 24, 9:25 am
