Experts say that a new superbug could spread throughout the globe that is resistant to even the most powerful antibiotics. Researchers have found a new gene called New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase, or NDM-1, in patients in South Asia and in Britain. The new gene makes bacteria highly resistant to most antibiotics, including the most powerful class known as carbapenems.  The experts say there are no new drugs on the horizon that can battle it. Timothy Walsh, who led the study, said...
