Diabetic foot ulcers and MRSA

The so-called 'Superbug', Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, continues to haunt the consciousness of both the public and the scientific community - if only as a reminder of the ability of micro-organisms to develop resistance to 'chemical' antibiotics.

This clinical study demonstrates that MRSA is as susceptible as non-resistant strains to the 'physical' challenge of Biogun technology.

A pilot study at Manchester Royal Infirmary shows that Biogun technology eliminates MRSA from the majority of small diabetic foot ulcers. This report comes in two forms: a letter to the journal Diabetes Care and the original pilot study data.
