ONLINE COVER An Earful of Antibiotics. As every parent knows, trying to give medication to a sick child is not an easy task, and antibiotics can cause diarrhea and many other side effects. In this issue, Yang et al. present a method for topical delivery of antibiotics to treat ear infections, using a hydrogel to ensure penetration of the drugs through the eardrum and into the middle ear, as illustrated here.
