Good Bacteria May Expunge Vancomycin-Resistant Bacteria from Your Gut (Feb. 27, 2013)

Too much antibiotic can decimate the normal intestinal microbiota, which may never recover its former diversity. That, in turn, renders the GI tract vulnerable to being colonized by pathogens. Now researchers from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, and Centro Superior de Investigación en Salud Pública, Valencia, Spain, show that reintroducing normal microbial diversity largely eliminated vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) from the intestinal tracts of mice. The investigators showed further that the findings may apply to humans.

Ultraviolet Light to sterilize hospitals: (March 2013)

The Xenex system at work. Because of risk to people, the camera was left inside.As the invisible bugs in hospitals get scarier and more prevalent, hospitals are finding new ways to clean.  Doylestown Hospital unveiled its newest high-tech weapon, a machine that zaps everything in a room with ultraviolet light 25,000 times brighter than the sun's. It can penetrate the defenses of Clostridium difficile, wily bacteria that produce spores that can live for weeks and are harder to kill than typical bacteria.  C. difficile causes diarrhea and kills 14,000 Americans a year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It has been on the rise in recent years, and health-care facilities, filled with weak, vulnerable patients, are among its favorite targets.  Hospitals are also using fluorescent markers and other methods to test housekeepers' work. An old standby - bleach - is in resurgence because it can kill C. difficile.   Source
