Treatments Beyond Antibiotics

There are many types of bacteria have been in use since the discovery of the very first antibiotic penicillin. These antibiotics are used for treating many types of infection caused by bacteria. But some types of bacteria are multidrug resistance and so the effect of antibiotics has decreased. So the alternatives have come into existence which includes phage therapy. Phages are nothing but the set of viruses that infects the bacteria. These bacteriophages have a certain mode of action which are the lytic module and lysogenic module. And other alternative includes killing factor. These factors are released by the bacteria itself which kills the sibling bacteria in case of starvation. Another alternative is called quorum quenching. the main advantage of using this quorum sensing inhibitor is that it inhibits the growth of drug-resistant bacteria.
