Amid reports that a British man had taken the world 's first Englisch: bio-pro.de/en/region/stern/magazine/…1/index.html In the case of "super gonorrhea", a variant of sexual transmissible infection, which is resistant to all known antibiotics, Australian researchers seem to have solved the mystery of how the Gonorrhea – Superbug attacks the immune system and thus opens the door to possible treatments for the future
In a Friday in the Journal PLOS Pathogen's study documented a team of researchers from Monash University around Dr. Thomas Naderer and dr. Pankaj Deo, as the tiny gonorrhea bacteria form membrane vesicles, these are even smaller agents that interact with immune cells. Medical Xpress further explained the methods used by the researchers, who used high-resolution microscopic techniques to record fractions of a second during which the vesicles cause certain immune cells to commit "orchestrated suicide" after an interaction. These immune cells are known as macrophages and are usually responsible for repelling bacteria and viruses, and once deactivated and killed by the vesicles, gonorrhea superbing can thrive.
Although the Monash researchers have not found any real treatments, Naderer said in a statement that discovering his team could be crucial in developing strategies that could fight gonorrhea and relieve the symptoms of disease. In addition, Medical Xpress noted that the study could give hope as medical researchers try to combat other types of antibiotic-resistant superbugs.

The new development comes just days after reports that suggested that a British man had contracted a "super" form of gonorrhea from a woman in Southeast Asia, one month before the onset of symptoms. This gonorrhea variant is resistant to the usual combination of azithromycin and ceftriaxone used to control the disease, according to CNN and represents the first time that a person has been diagnosed with gonorrhea As High Resistance To This Disease Has Both Antibiotics
In addition to possible hopes in the light of recent reports of "super gonorrhea" that were discovered in the UK, research also came at a time when gonorrhea is a bigger problem than ever in Australia is Medical Xpress wrote. Apart from statistics showing a 63% increase in gonorrhea diagnoses in the last five years, the report found that gonorrhea superbugs that have been recently discovered throughout Australia are harder to treat than ever before.
