A new antibiotic that acts as a "Trojan horse" has proven effective against drug-resistant bacteria, researchers have said.
Scientists say studies on 448 people with kidney or urinary tract infections found the drug Cefiderocum eradicated germs as well as actual treatments
The drug tricks the bacteria's biology by binding to iron to enter cells ̵
Experts say the results of The research highlights the potential of cefiderocol as a new option for treating highly resistant bacteria.
Research Director Simon Portsmouth of Shionogi Inc said: "Cefiderocol proved safe and tolerated in a population of elderly patients
" Our findings support cefiderocol as a novel approach that could be used to overcome Gram-Negati "
The drug, he said, takes advantage of the bacteria's need for iron to survive by binding to iron, which it bypasses
The findings, published in the Lancet Infectious Diseases Journal, are in the midst of the growing threat of human resistance to antibiotics, which has been identified as one of the most pressing threats.
a new report clarifies that infections caused by blood poisoning caused by an o Several key antibiotic resistant beetles have increased by 35% in just four years
Public Health England (PHE) calculated that if antibiotics become ineffective, three million operations and cancer treatments would be life threatening.
Currently, attempts to investigate the efficacy of Cefiderocol ag are investigating pneumonia and infections that are resistant to some of the strongest drugs, carbapenems. – Press Association
