A study done by researchers at McNeese State University in Louisiana suggests that proteins found in alligator blood may provide new antibiotics that could treat diabetic ulcers, severe burns and “superbugs," including MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), that are resistant to other kinds of medicine.
