It involves taking feces from a healthy donor, purifying it, and placing it back into the unhealthy patients gut via colonoscopy. It is a fairly inexpensive and reliable cure for C. difficile, and it still being studied, but so far has had very good outcomes. It mainly consists of transferring healthy gut bacteria from a healthy donor into the infected
Synthesis, molecular modeling and bio-evaluation of cycloalkyl fused 2-aminopyrimidines as antitubercular & antidiabetic agents 1. Introduction: o The target name and type: The target in this paper is the mycobacterial di-hydro folate reductase, alpha-glocosidase and glycogen phosphorylase The type of the targets is enzymes. o Diseases that associated with the target: The diseases that associated with the target are diabetes and tuberculosis. o Biological activity of the compounds: Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC): Susceptibility of the organisms which is isolated from the clinical specimens is determined with diffusion tests, and this test has some limitations. At the time of prolonged infection such as bacterial endocarditis or when
Like OPC-67683, Nitroimidazo-oxazine is a nitroimidazole that has demonstrated bactericidal and sterilizing activity against drug-resistant and non drug-resistant TB. Nitroimidazo-oxazine has also shown activity against both active and latent TB. In a 2002 agreement with the former biotechnology company Chiron, The TB Alliance is carrying out phase II clinical testing on Nitroimidazo-oxazine (Diacon et al. ). Nitroimidazo oxaine is also active against latent TB bacteria .In a latent state, bacteria are anaerobic and else replicating very slowly and non replicating.
You may include flowcharts and sketches, if it is helpful. (15 pts) There are three parts of the immune system that consist of the body’s natural barriers, the innate immune response and the adaptive immune response. The skin and mucosal surfaces form barriers against infection. When bacteria enters through a break in the natural barrier of the skin, it is first introduced to antimicrobial peptides under the surface of the skin that is supposed to kill bacteria,
Amoxicillin is a penicillin antibiotic that fights bacterial infections. Infections treated by amoxicillin are tonsillitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, gonorrhea, and ear, nose, throat, skin and urinary tract infections. Amoxicillin is a combination with another antibiotic called clarithromycin also used to treat stomach ulcers. Side effects of amoxicillin are yeast infections and diarrhea. Augmentin was the original name for Amoxicillin given by the inventor who was a British scientist at Beecham Research Laboratories in 1972.
Eat your broccoli its good for you. Your mom was right and it 's even better for you when eaten raw. The cooking process again reduces the health benefits by a considerable amount. Raw broccoli is loaded with vitamin C, calcium, potassium, and protein along with sulforaphane, which is a compound known to lower blood pressure, fight certain cancer cells, improve your heart health, and broccoli provides antioxidants that help with anti-aging and immunity. 4.)
4. The discovery of what causes a disease was made by Louis Pasteur. Pasteur developed the Germ Theory, this states that a microorganism called the “Germ” can cause dangerous diseases. He discovered the germ in a food conversion, the germ was infecting the food and beverages causing people to get
This theory holds that an illness is due to infection by a single microbe ultimately culminating in a specific clinical disease. This disease, in turn, may be cured by administering a contrary medicine such as an antibiotic which restores health through microbial killing. Modern medicine uses rational explanation of natural events in terms of cause and effect. The cause here is held as natural which is the germ and this microorganism is responsible for illnesses and diseases. The germ theory of disease, also called the pathogenic theory of medicine, is a theory that proposes that microorganisms are the cause of many diseases.
Following are the tests used for the identification of bacterial species based on the differences in the biochemical activities of different bacteria. Beta glucouronidase test is used for the identification of Escherichia coli. An enzyme is produced by E.coli which is beta D glucouronidase. Beta d glucouronidase in turn hydrolyzes beta d glucopyranosid uronic derivatives to aglycons and D glucuronic acid. Bile solubility test is used in laboratory for differentiation of alpha hemolytic Streptococci from Streptococcus pneumoniae.
Infection control is very important to minimise cross infection of Micro-organisms. Many micro-organisms are good for us and are essential for life, such as bacteria in the intestine which helps break down food waste matter. However, when a micro-organism is capable of doing harm it is said to be pathogenic. There are four main micro -organisms that cause disease, these include, Viruses, Bacteria, Fungi, and Protozoa. Personal Protective Equipment (P.P.E) can act as a barrier to protect you against infectious material.
