Can cockroach save your life?

Could cockroach save your life one day. Yes, according to a team of researchers at the University of Nottingham in the UK. Powerful antibiotic properties in the brains of cockroaches and locusts are able to kill more than 90 percent of bacteria- intruders that are often deadly to humans, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and pathogenic Escherichia coli- without harming human cells.
These findings, which were presented at the September 2010 meeting of the Society for General Microbiology in Nottingham, could lead to novel treatments for multi-drug-resistant bacterial infections.
Note: It is available to the public in five to ten years.
