A jab to beat the deadly C.diff superbug is to be tested on British patients.
Six hundred men and women will be given the vaccine - the first of its kind in the world - from next month.
If the tests prove successful, the jab could be on the market within three years and used to treat severely ill patients or to mass vaccinate pensioners.
C.diff thrives in filthy conditions and has been a contributing factor to around 18,000 deaths in the past decade - more than MRSA.
