Sweden has started a trial of an experimental treatment for a severe infection called Meningococcal meningitis that has killed more than 1,000 babies since January, the country’s health minister said.
Swedish hospitals have been treating babies with Meningitis for several years in an effort to improve care and save lives.
The new treatment is being tested on infants in Sweden and the United States and may be available in other countries in the coming months.
The virus has killed at least 7,600 newborns in Sweden in the past two years, and the country has about half the world’s population.
Meningitis is the most common type of pneumonia and the cause of the majority of cases in the developed world.
It is caused by bacteria in the airways.
“We have been very happy with the results of the Meningoccal trial.
The results will determine whether the new treatment can be used in Sweden,” said Johanna Länskog, the health minister.
More: The Meningiches are a rare type of bacteria found in the lungs of infants, and are more common in young children and adults than adults, said Lälskog.
This type of infection is caused when the baby is in close contact with a warm, moist environment that is contaminated by mucus or saliva.
Meningocephaly is a congenital condition in which the brain is smaller than normal, and can cause intellectual and developmental delays.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Meningos cases are on the rise in the United Kingdom, France, Canada and the U.S. The Meningosem virus is transmitted by close contact between two people, such as by kissing or coughing.
If the baby gets infected, it is likely to survive for days or even weeks.
In the United states, the Mensoccal treatment is the only option available to treat the infection.
Since the vaccine was introduced in 2014, Sweden has seen an increase in Meningous cases, according to the Swedish Health Ministry.
The ministry reported there were 1,077 cases last year and 717 deaths.
About 1,600 babies have died from Meningosis so far this year, the ministry said.
