The most common treatment for these infections, caused by Staphylococcus aureus is the antibiotics. There are many kinds of antibiotics using in the modern days, but the first kind of antibiotic being introduced for treating Staphylococcus aureus was Penicillin in 1943. This kind of antibiotic stops the formation of peptidoglycan cross-linkages that makes the bacterial cell well stronger. This eventually makes the cell wall formation and degradation become imbalanced, consequently lead to the cell to die. Other kinds of antibiotic were quick introduced for treating Staphylococcus as well.
But what do the antibiotics exactly do? And how they can cure diseases? As a matter of fact, Antibiotics are powerful medicines that can cure bacterial infections if they are used properly. They fight against bacteria by destroying or inhibiting bacteria growth. Soil bacteria and fungi are the natural components of Antibiotics ((n.d.).
All fungal infections can have serious side effects. However, these side effects usually go away once the medication is stopped. The most common side effects of fluconazole and itraconazole are nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea. More severe infection can be treated initially with an antifungal medication intravenously, as amphotericin B (Abelcet, Amphotec, other). These drugs control the fungus, but sometimes you do not destroy, and relapses may occur.
After running an ELISA on the patient to test for meningitis since it seemed to be common, the results came back negative and we were able to rule out Meningitis. So we ran a BLAST on Anthony’s blood to identify the DNA sequence for the bacteria and diagnose him. The BLAST identified the bacteria that he has to be Influenza B Virus, also known as the flu. To treat the flu, acetaminophen was given to decrease the fever and help with the muscle aches, as well as antiviral medications to fight the virus. Getting lots of rest and drinking lots of fluids will also help his body fight off the virus even
The anti-inflammatory nature of melatonin connects it with the immune system. It also helps in fighting with many infectious diseases. Melatonin acts on the immune responses through production of oxidative stress and cytokine modulation. It is less toxic so is prescribed by most of the clinicians during inflammation. Its overconsumption can suppress the steroidal effect and so it should be controlled.
The TB treatments such as drugs stop the spread of TB germs, but the treatments have dangerous side effects, which are permanent. For example, the patient loses the normal color of the skin, so the patents have a jaundice appearance. Moreover, a loss of appetite is another serious effect of the
Inducing Prodigiosin Transposon mutagenesis in Serratia Marcescens Introduction Serratia Marcescens is an opportunistic pathogen, mainly of healthcare facilities but can also be found in many diverse environments. Serratia is a gram negative bacteria which can give it innate resistance to certain antibiotics, especially those that target peptidoglycan cell wall synthesis, due to its outer membrane. In an environment with different microorganisms competing for food Serratia holds a component that gives it another selective advantage. The bacteria contains a red pigment called prodigiosin, that has antibacterial, antifungal, and even antiprotozoal activity. The pigment is produced due to quorum sensing of bacteria, when an appropriate level of N-hex anoyl-L-homoserine lactone (HHL),
Failure to finish the course of antibiotics can cause mutation to a more severe form called multi-drug resistant TB (MDR) or extensively drug resistant TB (XDR-TB). The XDR regime involves 2 years of injection followed by 3 years of tablets, yet it is almost incurable. While there were measures in place to encourage patients to take their full regime, in spite of side effects, it was not clear how successful they were. One patient, Bheki, attended a support group designed to increase patient compliance. However, when his symptoms got worse and he went to the doctor and told them that if they increased his medications that he would throw them
As feline panleukopenia, it cannot be cured. Instead, its symptoms will be treated during the duration of the disease. An IV drip may be necessary to restore fluids and electrolytes into your cat's system while a special diet, including regular vitamin supplements, will help them keep their strength. Vomiting is treated by anti-emetics and any bacterial infection will be immediately treated with antibiotics. Intestinal bacteria is especially common with this disease, as the virus primarily attacks the digestive system.
As for ACE inhibitors they serve to primarily relax the blood vessels. This substance will cause blood vessels to narrow and increase the blood pressure. The ACE inhibitors side effects often include lightheadedness, joint pain, or skin rashes. ACE inhibitors also have a common side effect of a really dry cough, which makes it hard for patients to speak. The third most common medication used for heart disease is Angiotensin Receptor Blockers which will help patients by lowering blood pressure and helping in preventing blood vessels from constricting (narrowing them).
“Anti-inflammatory medications help to relieve many of the symptoms of lupus by reducing inflammation and pain. Anti-inflammatories are the most common drugs used to treat lupus, particularly symptoms such as fever, arthritis or pleurisy, which generally improve within several days of beginning treatment” (lupus.org). They may be bought without a prescription and can also be taken if currently experiencing joint pain and swelling in your fingers, wrist or knees. An antimalarial drug is also used to treat malaria can also be used to manage some symptoms of lupus. Antimalarial drug is “used to treat skin rashes, mouth sores and joint pain.
In the case of advanced tetanus treatment involves antibiotics and paralytics while being put on a respirator, which is needed until your receptors regenerate. (Andrew Lehman, Immunologist and Virologist, https://www.quora.com/How-can-tetanus-be-cured). Tetanus often begins with mild spasms in the jaw muscles—also known as lockjaw or trismus. The spasms can also affect the
This means that scientists had to produce a large quantity of the drug for it to be effective in a large, semi long-term setting. This problem also directly relates to the problem of not having enough of the mold. If scientists needed to make more penicillin, but they didn’t have enough mold, then they wouldn’t be able to make enough medicine to help all of the sick or dying people. Despite this problem however, there was a beneficial impact from it. While trying to figure out a way to make the penicillin last longer or remain in the blood stream for a longer time, scientists made a huge discovery that would help them in their goal of creating enough penicillin for a multitude of people.
The triclosan antiseptic is the most effective killer of E. Coli bacteria; however, recent studies have shown it could be harmful to human health. We recommend to doctors, hospitals, schools and families to use non- triclosan based products to help kill bacteria. Although the most effective killer, triclosan could potentially contribute to the development of antibiotic-resistant germs and be harmful to the immune system. Scientists must find the balance between effectively killing bacteria and the safety of human
Dimethyl Fumarate (Tecfidera) belongs to a class of drugs called Nrf2 activators and may work by decreasing inflammation thus preventing nerve damage. Tecfidera may cause serious side effects, including allergic reactions and has been implicated in the death of one patient who developed Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML). The most common side effects of Tecfidera include flushing and stomach
