NCSU doctor developing new bandage technology

RALEIGH, N.C. — When Elizabeth Loboa went in to see her doctor about something on her leg, her doctor said there was no reason to biopsy it.

“I think it’s MERSA,” the doctor said.

That wasn’t exactly welcome news. MERSA is a very difficult to deal with, drug-resistant bacterium but Dr. Loboa – a biomedical engineering professor and researcher at North Carolina State University knew exactly what to do: Call the office.

Dr. Loboa had been working on a special bandage infused with silver – a very effective anti-bacterial agent – and used her own lab project to heal her MERSA.

In this edition of the Buckley Report, see what else Dr. Loboa thinks her lab can do.
