Nanomedicine is the key to abolishing ear infections

The Santa Maria lab recently published their discovery, in Nanoscale, on leveraging nanomedicine to eradicate bacterial perister cells in chronic suppurative oititis media. The discovery is the first to show both in vitro and in vivo efficacy against persister cells and paes the way for an exciting new treatment to eradicate chronic bacterial infections. It's part of their work to abolish the leading cause for permanent hearing loss in the developing world.
