No evidence for Marks & Spencer’s 'MRSA resistant' pyjamas

When a friend told me that Marks & Spencer had started to sell ‘MRSA resistant’ pyjamas, I decided to look into the claims and find out whether there was any evidence behind them. When I got through to the right person I was told a trial was underway but not yet complete. I am keeping an eye out for the trial results and will keep pursuing it – many people going into hospital are concerned about MRSA but they deserve to know the evidence behind these claims.

Update: M&S no longer stock 'MRSA resistant' pyjamas.
