Daniel Pilch, PhD, associate professor, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, explains which patients would not make good candidates for MRSA prodrug TXA709. Dr. Pilch shares that TXA709 is capable of treating life-threatening bloodstream infections as well as skin and soft tissue infections.
