Is the world Save the bacteriophage?

Bacteriophages are very ancient group of viruses. They are present wherever there are those bacteria ,. which they feed. And when there is food they multiply like a rocket. It wolves in the forest, where a lot of birds with one stone. And the population will continue to grow until it runs into the forest rabbits. Their billions of species and their diversity repeatedly covers a variety of the rest of life on Earth. interior design Madison

If a wolf – this is one type of bacteriophage, it is difficult to imagine a forest, where these kinds of trillions of predators. And in this, and the complexity and difficulty. It is very difficult to find that the only type of phage, which can hold antimicrobial therapy. It’s like guessing the first attempt to code in a bank vault.

Simplistically work phages so – penetrate its prey with its genome, infecting bacteria in their genome. The bacteria begins to copy the phages and die. Thus microflora of the patient is maintained. which is very important for the rapid restoration of health. This is promising. gene editing technology CRISPR-Cas is based on protection from bacteria phages.

It is known that viruses are resistant to antibiotics
Antibiotics are today massively used in livestock without antibiotics today impossible to imagine modern medicine. The use of antibiotics leads to the emergence of resistant bacteria and viruses thereto. And the creation of new types of antibiotics are starting to become more and more expensive. dance studio Madison Furthermore, the scientists predict that soon the process will slow down, because bacteria and viruses are adapting faster than the creation of new antibiotics. For example, dozens of kinds of antibiotics are no longer applied since become ineffective. For example – penicillin. And this can happen quite soon.

As we can, and we will all fight infections? After all, without antibiotics terms of recovery of patients will increase. In addition, antibiotics have many side effects. And today, antibiotics are used so massively that many things become possible, and the risk of serious consequences will increase many times. Any serious illness can be fatal. For example, cancer will lead to a sad end at 99%. Or a visit to the dentist can be fatal. As with any injury however. Or just cut. It will become impossible transplatatsiya bodies. Prior to the discovery of penicillin in childbirth and after about 1 percent of women did not survive as a result of infection taken up.

It seems that modern medicine can be in the nineteenth century without antibiotics. Is it so? What could be the replacement? Penicillin – a fungus. And any antibiotic – a strain of the fungus. But bacteriophages may in some areas completely replace antibiotics. cleaning service Madison

Phage therapy is well forgotten old
The study of phage therapy began in the early XX century in the treatment of French soldiers from dizentirii microbiologist Felix D’Errel. He made using phage different medicines for colds, diarrhea. Studies of phages were almost stopped with the invention of penicillin.

Today, this area is used in Poland at the Institute. Ludwig Hirtsfelda those who are not helped with antibiotics. And in Georgia, where he is the center of phage therapy. The work of this center helps many patients who are not helped with antibiotics.

There are supporters and opponents of phage therapy. Clinical trials of bacteriophages is quite durable. It takes years to make sure that there are no acceptable consequences. And it is quite expensive. dentist Madison But the prize may be large. In many bacteriophages and advantages. First of all, it is selective to a particular type of pathogenic bacteria, as for the bacteriophage is a “unique” food. And he can do something that can not be the immune system. But this requires accurate diagnosis of the patient, it is this pathogenic bacteria cause disease. While there are more questions than answers.
