Quotes

A close-up of the pH chip. So why does it say “Pitt” on there? Star explains, "You need some features on the chip for quality control – to make sure that the photolithography process was successful. So we decided to spell 'Pitt' rather than [make] a simple line. These gold lines are smaller in diameter than the fingers of our interdigitated electrodes (on the right), which we use for sensing. So if you can see [the] 'Pitt' letters, then all the electrode features are manufactured successfully."
"The 'nightmare superbug' is just one step further than these" Price, who studies antibiotic resistance at George Washington University in Washington D C , says
...Krishna Menon , Chief Scientific Officer at Cellceutix . "A Gram-negative bacteria, Klebsiella pneumoniae is one of the world's most dangerous superbugs; strains of this bacteria are rapidly emerging that are resistant to virtually every antibiotic available today. The world is staring down the barrel at a growing number of bacteria that can't be killed by available drugs and the last line of defense is wearing thin. We are very pleased with this latest study providing another piece of evidence that our defensin mimetics have the potential to introduce the first new class of antibiotic drugs in more than two decades to combat the growing problem of antibiotic resistance."
"Any infection is one-too-many and it’s very much at the front of our minds when caring for patients. But having seen the rates of MRSA and Clostridium difficile reduced, we are now starting to have the conversation about how much lower can we actually get, accepting the fact that – on some occasions – these infections are actually unavoidable, because if we fail to treat the patient, that will do harm, but if we treat the patient and put in drips and drains, for example, then that does expose them to risk. So it’s a bit of a double-edged sword."
