IBM and The Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology Find Breakthrough for MRSA Treatment
Date:4/4/2011

d areas while preserving the healthy red blood cells the body needs to transport oxygen throughout the body and combat bacteria.

Unlike most antimicrobial materials, this new polymer structure is biodegradable, which enhances their potential application because they are naturally eliminated from the body (rather than remaining behind and accumulating in organs).

The antimicrobial polymers, created by IBM Research and the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, were tested against clinical microbial samples by the State Key Laboratory for Diagnosis and Treatment of Infectious Diseases, First Affiliated Hospital, College of Medicine and Zhejiang University in China. The full research paper was recently published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Chemistry.

Researchers from IBM already are applying principles like these to create potential medical innovations like the DNA Transistor and 3-D MRI. IBM Research has also been working on a one-step, point-of-care diagnostic test based on an innovative silicon chip that requires less sample volume, is significantly faster, portable, easy to use, and can test for many diseases. Dubbed "Lab on a Chip," the results are so quick and accurate that a small sample of a patient's blood could be tested immediately following a heart attack to enable the doctor to quickly take a course of action to help the patient survive.
