An unprecedented strain of a drug found in effective Irish soils has been confirmed against four of the six main antibiotic antiviotic trees.
Antibiotic boosting up to 1.3 million people could be killed in Europe by 2050, according to recent research, and for the production of a World Health Organization "One of the biggest global health threats, food security and current development. "
The new strain of vegetables – called Streptomyces sp. Myrophorea – a team based in the University of Swansea Medical School, made up of researchers from Wales, Brazil, Iraq and Northern Ireland. The work is published in Borders in microbiology.
The soil began to analyze in an area of Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, known as Boho Highlands. It is a range of alkaline grazings and it is said that the ground is He has remedies.
New antibiotics are detected to address multi-serving on & # 39; Guide investigations to explore new sources, and include generic medication: a range of research called ethnopharmacology. They also focus on environments where you can identify antibiotics agents known as Streptomyces.
One member of the former Gerry Quinn research team, who lived in Boho, in Fermanagh County, had been aware of the area's healing heritage for many years.
Traditionally, a little bit of something was attached there cotton clothing and was used to cure many diseases, such as insect disease, neck and neck. Interestingly, Druids, which was around 1,500 years ago, and the Neolithic Age was 4,000 years ago.
The main findings of the research found that the recently identified conflict of Streptomyces prevented the growth of four of the six major multi-known patrols identified by WHO as a responsibility for the diseases related to medical care: Enterococcus faecium (VRE) which is a? Vancomycin, Staphylococcus aureus-resistant Vancomycin (MRSA), Klebsiella and Acinetobacter baumanii-carbenepenem-resistant hold
It also prevents the confirmation of grammatical and grammatical graphs, which are different in the structure of its & cell wall; in general Gram-negative bacteria are stronger than antibiotics.
It is not yet clear what part of the new strain is that prevents the growth of pathogens, but the team is already in a position; investigating this.
Professor Paul Dyson of the University of Swansea Medicine School said: "The new stress of this medicine is effective in the face of 4 of the 6 main antibiotic antagonics, including MRSA. it is an important step forward in the fight against antibiotic resistance. "
"Our results show that it is worth researching traditional folklore and medicines in the search of new antibiotics. Scientists, historians and scientists may have something Archaeologists that add to this work, some of the response seems to have been the very real problem that may be in the wisdom of the past. "
