    Hospital Superbugs now in focus.....Dec28 Telegraph UK.....Disinfectants can encourage deadly superbugs, research finds....The bug is an important cause of hospital-acquired infections, which kill thousands each year.

    With the above creating news Biota could well be on a winner with either/or Prolysis (which is based at Oxford in England)/MaxThera (which is based in Boston in the US)
    Prolysis has two projects developing antibiotics to manage hospital superbugs.
    MaxThera also had two programs targeting drug-resistant bacterial infections, including those commonly known as superbugs or golden staph.
    Prolysis and MaxThera might appear similar, but each had a potential product in its own right.
    Biota expects to invest $25m over the next three years developing key programs acquired from Prolysis, thereby extending its current anti-viral portfolio to include a new pipeline of early stage anti-bacterial programs.
    Biota also intends to accelerate the development of MaxThera's lead program and invest up to $US15m over the next three to five years.

    Let's hope the above investments prove up new income streams for Biota.
    GL all holders and Wishing all a Happy and prosperous New Year.
