Irish muck could be part of the answer to the world's battles against "superbugs". These health threats against antibiotic resistance, which authorities estimate could kill 1.3 million people in Europe by 2050.
The Discovery Report Comes In The RDMag, where researchers searched for the properties of the Irish soil, it has been suggested that it has long found medicinal properties.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified the looming problem of superbugs as "one of the biggest threats to" global health, food security and development today. "
The Study o When the Irish Muck is found, it contains a previously unknown bacterial strain that works against four of the six best superbugs that are now resistant to most known antibiotics.
The report states that a team from Swansea University Medical School worked on the project, and they have the new strain Streptomyces sp. myrophorea.
The filth comes from the area of Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, also known as the Boho Highlands.
The soil that forms the basis for alkaline grasslands is said to have "healing properties," according to the report, Gerry Quinn, part of the research team, knew from reports that the soil had healing properties.
"Traditionally, a small amount of soil has been wrapped in cotton cloth and used to treat many ailments including toothache, neck and neck infections. Interestingly, this area was occupied by Druids around 1
The results of the team's evaluation turned out to be surprising.
The new strain "inhibits the growth of four of the six major multidrug-resistant pathogens identified by the WHO as responsible for healthcare infections: vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Klebsiella pneumonia and carbenepenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumanii.
Paul Dyson of Swansea University Medical School described it as an important step in the fight against antibiotic-resistant diseases.
And team member Gerry Quinn said the discovery will help find new medicines Multi-resistant bacteria are the cause of many dangerous and deadly infections. "
Superbugs are such a threat, she was no less a personality than Chuck Norris, who recently pointed out the problem.
These are new forms of bacteria that are determined to prevent nothing that can be left untreated.
The problem arises because he says: "Bacteria largely develop resistance to antibiotics through a natural development process. As common antibiotics became less effective, doctors responded by prescribing more and more drugs. Since many antibiotics are available without a prescription, many people have to treat themselves by self-medication. In addition, a significant number of patients discontinue their antibiotics before the entire course is completed. This practice may increase the risk of developing drug resistance as unnoticed residual infections may create an environment for resistant bacteria to persist. Every time a bacterium is exposed to an antibiotic, but not killed, it can develop resistance. "
Experts warned that common medical treatments, such as hip surgery, could become impossible due to use and overuse of antibiotics.
