Superbug Series: Taking down a 'superbug'

Microscopic in size but forceful in nature, ‘superbugs’ are able to outsmart the toughest antibiotic defences. We delve into how doctors and veterinarians take on these strains of mutated bacteria in the clinical setting. What’s in their arsenal of antibiotics and how dire can it get when a patient or animal fails to respond to any form of treatment?

Panel guests: Dr Trent Yarwood, Dr Hugh Wright, Professor Glenn Browning and Dr Laura Hardefeldt
