In 10 seconds? A surprise discovery has handed us the opportunity to protect hospital patients against hitherto drug-resistant and often lethal superbugs, like the dreaded methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

This was an important discovery because earlier attempts to create vaccines against Staph have failed.
