Wallaby milk fights superbugs

Wallaby milk may hold the key to fighting superbugs. Of course, this is one of a number of compounds recently found in marsupials, such as koalas, that have exciting medical applications. Young wallabies don't develop an immune system until 100 days after birth, yet they typically manage to avoid infection. This compound is part of the reason why, say Australian scientists.
