Giant Panda blood offers possible superbug solution

Biologists have discovered that a powerful antibiotic compound in Giant Panda blood may have a range of human applications.

The compound, cathelicidin-AM, kills bacteria and fungi in the pandas' bloodstream and biologists suspect it may have the potential to be used in a wide range of human medicine -- particular in treating drug-resistant superbugs.
You're welcome world.
