Pedersens Laboratorium discovers new way to fight bacterial infections

Financial daily Børsen reports that Pedersens Laboratorium in Vejle, South Jutland, has announced a revolutionary discovery for fighting bacterial infections which at the same time offers a new weapon against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Owner Jens Pedersen and his son Torben Pedersen have found a way of combining the enzyme lysozyme with antibodies from cow’s milk to enable it to destroy Gram negative bacteria. The new substance can be used as first line treatment for skin and soft tissue infections that previously could only be treated with antibiotics. This allows antibiotics to be held in reserve for serious blood borne infections, and thus represents a major step forward in the important battle against bacterial resistance. The company is reportedly open to approaches from potential development co-operation partners.
