A new study has revealed the mechanistic basis for how the methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacterium became such a difficult pathogen over the previous 50 years, in which time it spread rapidly across the world.

Bugs exposed to antibiotics for long periods are known to develop resistance to drugs by quickly pumping them out of their cells or modifying the compounds so that they`re no longer toxic.
