    SUPERBUG

  • Several vaccine-development programs persisted, however, including one based around a reformulation of StaphVAX, and another developing a novel formula that targeted cell-wall protein, which was the work of pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co.33 In 2008, researchers reported interim success—in an animal trial only—with a third new approach.

    SUPERBUG

  • Similar to penicillin, the new drug killed by interfering with cell-wall synthesis, but its mode of action was different: it bound to a different component of the developing cell wall, in such a manner that bacteria ought to have a more difficult time foiling its activity.
