Tree resin could cure in­fec­tions caused by MRSA bac­teria

Currently, MRSA is one of the fastest evolving bacteria, causing a wide range of infections from skin disease to serious endocarditis. Researchers at the University of Helsinki created a new biopolymer which kills MRSA nearly 100% upon contact, by combining nanocellulose with compounds derived from tree resin, a side stream from forest industry.
