When antibiotics first came on the scene, deaths from pneumonia plunged. But the microbes that cause the lung infection are resilient and continue to evolve, creating new strains that don't respond to conventional drugs. This program tours a high-tech medical lab where super-bacteria are identified, illuminates ongoing research into fighting drug-resistant MRSA, and explains why serious pneumonia cases can put doctors in a race against time. Expert guests include Dr. Marin Kollef of Washington University's School of Medicine, Dr. John Gill Bartlett of Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and Dr. Michael S. Niederman of Winthrop University Hospital.
