Nanotech weapon against chronic bacterial infections in hospitals

Biofilms have been linked to 80% of infections, forming on living tissues or dwelling in medical devices, and cause chronic infections that are extremely resistant to antibiotics able to evade the immune system. A new nanomedicine technique offers a non-toxic way to dislodge biofilms in infected tissue, making them vulnerable to antibiotics.
