Bacterial infections that target the intestine can cause conditions that range from uncomfortable to deadly. While it's easy to blame the bacteria, it's actually the toxins the bacteria produce that trigger inflammation, diarrhea, fever and cramps. Researchers now report the development of a microgel scavenger that targets toxins instead of bacteria. They will present their results today at the 255th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.
