Experimental gel clears ear infections in 1 application

An experimental antibiotic gel that could revolutionize ear infection treatment penetrated the eardrums of chinchillas and cleared an infection within a week, researchers reported in Science Translational Medicine. The antibiotic was undetectable in the animals’ blood, and the eardrums appeared normal after the gel dissolved about three weeks after application.
