    The private sector doesn't mind sharing the cost of research, butis loath to share the profits with the public sector.

    Give the pharmaceutical companies another tax break - they deserve it!

    Did anyone else notice that this discovery was made by the University of Montreal, in Canada?

    Who here thinks it was funded by "big pharma?"

    From your link:
    There are a multitude of possible responses to antibiotic resistance, and researchers from the Université de Montréal (UdeM) in Canada may have found another potential solution. In a study published in the journal Scientific Reports*earlier this November, this team of researchers from UdeM’s Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine explored a method that could block the transfer of antibiotic resistance genes.
    So, no.
