Certain Skin Bacteria can Inhibit Growth of Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Researchers have found a bacteriocin that can help inhibit the growth of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Infections with antibiotic-resistant bacteria are a growing global problem. Part of the solution may lie in copying the bacteria’s own weapons. The research environment in Tromsø has found a new bacteriocin, in a very common skin bacterium. Bacteriocin inhibits the growth of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that are often the cause of disease and can be difficult to treat.

One million deaths each year.

The fact that we have medicines against bacterial infections is something many people take for granted.
