Israeli researchers develop viruses that kill bowel-harming germs as a precise weapon

Two distinct virus “cocktails” have been the subject of phase 1 clinical investigations; preliminary results indicate that they are safe, and extensive in vitro and animal testing indicates that they are antibacterial. The notion of Phage therapy, also known as Bacteriophage therapy, is not new and was the focus of intensive study in the early […]

Early antibiotic use can result in lifelong allergies and Asthma

The study, which was published in Mucosal Immunology, has offered the clearest proof to date that the long-recognized link between early antibiotic exposure and the later onset of asthma and allergies is causal. In the study, the researchers found that the gut microbiome ecosystems and metabolic processes are impacted by antibiotics, one of the most […]

Vegetables have a miraculous compound that can accelerate the rate at which your wounds heal

Leafy greens like Broccoli may help break down biofilms that render bacteria resistant to antibiotics, according to research from Beersheba’s Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU). By employing a natural chemical, Israeli researchers assert that they were able to double the pace of wound healing in pigs. They stated that they intended to develop the […]

When parents are given antibiotics, the children become weaker

According to a recent study, zebrafish immune systems deteriorate if one parent has ever used antibiotics. Researchers have found that antibiotics can have negative effects for numerous generations. Antibiotics were previously heralded as the world’s savior. Since their creation, we have used antibiotics in such vast quantities and so frequently that more and more of […]

Fiber-rich diets are linked to lower levels of antibiotic resistance in gut microbes

Researchers from the Agricultural Research Service and their colleagues found that healthy adults who consume at least 8 to 10 grams of soluble fiber daily have less antibiotic-resistant bacteria in their stomachs. With the widely held belief that the issue of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), the term used to refer to bacteria, viruses, and fungi that […]

After an acute case of RSV bronchiolitis in an infant, azithromycin does not prevent recurrent wheezing

Half of all RSV-infected infants had been diagnosed with asthma by the age of seven, according to Avraham Beigelman, MD, the study’s lead author. This prompted researchers to look into azithromycin, an antibiotic with anti-inflammatory properties, in the hopes of finding a therapeutic drug to prevent recurrent wheezing after an acute RSV infection in children. […]

Effectiveness of antibiotics reduced when multiple Microbes present

When other germs are present, substantially greater dosages of antibiotics are required to clear a bacterial infection of the airways, according to a study. The study explains why, despite treatment, respiratory infections are common in persons with lung illnesses like cystic fibrosis. Researchers maintain that even a low quantity of one type of microbe in […]
