Anti-MRSA silver pyjamas

Pyjamas and bed linen made with silver cloth are being trialled in a hospital to help combat the MRSA superbug.
More than 300 people who have tested positive for carrying MRSA on their skin will be recruited for the trial which began this month. Half will be given silver-lined pyjamas and linen while the rest will receive standard hospital gowns and bedding. The results of the two groups will be compared to see if the silver materials led to increased MRSA eradication.
