A report by the review on the Antimicrobial Resistance commissioned in 2014 by the UK Prime Minister David Cameron and economist Jim O''Neill warned that antimicrobial resistance could kill around 10 million people every year by 2050. A new type of dressing that uses an antibacterial substance formed from the shells of crustaceans like shrimps could offer relief to thousands of people worldwide.
