Important Discovery of Reagent to Destroy Biofilms

6/15/2106: Today was  a big day for discovery results.  I learned I now have a reagent to destroy bacterial biofilms.  Bacteria are antibiotic resistant in major part due to fact they can form a plastic like protective covering called a biofilm.  Present day antibiotics cannot penetrate this covering to kill the bacteria.  I have discovered the molecule, the dose, the vehicle to carry it, the interval of treatment, the duration and the successful result.  The specifics are not listed here as it will be the subject of a patent submission.  The laboratory discovery did however destroy the biofilm of the two main pathogens; Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Methicillin Resistant Staph Aureus (MRSA).  This may be the first antibiotic to simultaneously destroy biofilms and their parent bacteria.

This means there will be a way to coat total joint and other implants to kill any potential biofim attaching and thereby reduce infections related to this surgery.
