Peptide link

A novel peptide structure that can bolster the immune system against even multiple-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE) could herald a new era of antibiotics resistant to bacterial defenses. Robert Hancock of the University of British Columbia have discovered a peptide sequence they refer to as innate defense regulator peptide (IDR-1) that can increase immunity without inducing the inflammatory response. The peptide those offers protection before and after infection.
