New gel may stop spread of MRSA

FLORIDA (CNN) - A Florida doctor believes he can keep a deadly bacteria from spreading.

Doctor Robert Berman created a prescription gel called "Vanco-gel," which is designed to fight MRSA.

MRSA Is a bacteria that spreads quickly, especially through open wounds.

The doctor says his gel can stop the transfer of MRSA and potentially save thousands of lives.

"This would be my greatest contribution to people in the whole world. Now, there's no better feeling than that," expressed Berman.

MRSA Is a bacteria that spreads quickly, especially through open wounds.
Right now, it is only treated through oral medication or through an IV.

Doctor Berman's gel would be placed directly on the wounds.

Clinical trials are scheduled to begin in a few weeks.
