Tel Aviv -
A research team have discovered a protein that kills bacteria. The isolation of this protein, produced by a virus that attacks bacteria, could help protect patients from hospital 'superbugs'.
Some scientists have argued that a protein complex found in human breast milk can help challenge the antibiotic resistance of several bacterial species, including those known to cause hospital related infections.
Researchers are suggesting that a component found in panda blood may be more effective in treating infection than current antibiotics. According to the study, the component can fight bacteria in rapid time.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be tracking the use of antibiotics in hospital settings using electronic tracking systems. The reason behind this move is to improve the use of medicines that could lead to superbugs.
