Soil, which belongs to healing properties
A group of researchers, Jerry Kinne, a former resident of Boho, Fergus County, had known for years the healing traditions of the region.
Traditionally, a small cloth for cotton rags has been used to treat many diseases, such as teeth, food and neck infections. Interestingly, this territory was occupied by Druids 1500 years ago and 4,000 years before the Neolithic.
The main findings of the study were Streptomyces's recently identified strains that prevented the growth of six major multivariable pathogenic strains identified by WHO as responsible for viral-infected Enterococcus faecium (VRE) infections, vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Klebsiella pneumonia and carbenepenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumanii. It also blocks gamma-positive and gram-negative bacteria that are different in their cell wall structures; In general, gram-negative bacteria are resistant to antibiotics.
It is not clear which component of the new strain will prevent the growth of pathogens, but the team is already investigating this issue.
Professor Paul Dyson, of Swansea University School of Medicine, says: "This new bacterial strains are effective against 4 antibiotics, including 6 major pathogens resistant to MRSA." Our anger is an important step. antibiotic resistance.
"Our results show that folklore and traditional medicine are worth exploring new antibiotics. Scientists, historians, and archaeologists can contribute to this task, as part of a response to a modern problem may be in the wisdom of the past. "
