Infection control standards in California updated in new law

MyDentalCE.com Newsdesk news

Better and Stronger Antibiotic Fights Bacterial Resistance

MyDentalCE.com Newsdesk news

New Antibiotic Packs a Punch Against Bacterial Resistance LA JOLLA, CA – May 29, 2017 – Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have given new superpowers to a lifesaving antibiotic called vancomycin, an advance that could eliminate the threat of antibiotic-resistant infections for years to come.
