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.
Although Fleming’s discovery won him the Nobel Prize, he warned of bacteria becoming resistant to penicillin in his acceptance speech. Nevertheless, bacteria will eventually find ways of resisting any antibiotics developed by humans, so to prevent the resistance that already exists from spreading, aggressive pursuit of new means of antibacterial
“Although doctors may recommend colon cleansing in preparation for a medical examination of the colon, most don't recommend colon cleansing for better health or to prevent disease.”(Picco,MD.,2015) Colon cleansing has many different pros and cons with it. Many believe that our body needs a colon cleanse that will help breakdown all the toxic buildup while other believe nothing is needed since our body does this on its on. I believe that the information provided from the article Colon Cleansing: Is it helpful or harmful because there is no proven results of colon cleansers preventing diseases. After reading this article as well as the chapters in the book I was able to get a clear understanding of how different parts of our body work. I don’t
Getting vaccinated could make the difference between life and death. When you get vaccinated, you are not only protecting yourself, but also those around you. . Many countries and states keep track of reportable diseases in an effort to prepare and develop their own strategies in disease prevention. Vaccination, decreases the number of people who are at risk for contracting these diseases as they have the antibodies available to fight against the disease.
A case where the ulcer treatment market was satisfied finding treatment for the symptoms of the disease rather than unraveling the source was proven wrong by Barry Marshal. The researchers argued that bacteria cannot survive in the stomach, but Barry proved them wrong by finding the root of the problem and solving it. He isolated the bacteria and swallowed it and was later diagnosed with the disease and this led to the researchers accepting that the gut bacteria have enormous implications on an individual 's health (Levitt, Dubner and Kobbe 36-46).The chapter discourages against gravitating towards the most obvious and the nearest solutions to a problem and encourages most people to be original thinkers when trying to solve difficulties in life. Most people especially students, like having the easy way out in solutions to problems and fail to engage their minds in coming up with solutions and this leads to lack of innovative thoughts as most of them rely on what has already been
Despite antibiotics3, bacteria are sometimes difficult to eradicate and if the disease is very aggressive4, surgery may be required to treat patients5. We’ve found a typical case of a relatively rare disease that took some time to be properly diagnosed. Following current guidelines, we starting first with antibiotic treatment and then, given the persistence of the disease, with a more aggressive surgical option3-4. It is known that if the disease persists despite antibiotic therapy, as in this case, is adequate treat the patient surgically5. We wondered if we had had to intervene early with surgery, in order to rapidly eradicate the disease, but at the moment the evidences point to intervene only in case of persistence of the disease despite maximal medical therapy.
People can be seen wearing ill-fitting masks, removing the masks, or wearing them without covering their nose. The CDC suggests surgical mask may not be an adequate barrier to prevent the spread of the disease. The disease is highly infectious and several nurses working at the TB isolation hospital, where Nakubheka was treated for her MDR-TB, were also infected. The treatment for TB has side effects, ranging from nausea and vomiting to permanent deafness and renal failure, and is not always completed by patients. 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).
An example of this would be pharmaceutical companies raising the cost for medicine, this cause many patients to suffer or not be able to afford the medication they need. When a person is going to make a moral decision based on consequentialism, he or she first look at the good and bad possible consequences of the action, then determine whether the total good consequences outweigh the total bad.
In the science sector, there are many arguments whether science is beneficial for humans or is it a curse upon us, this debate is also applicable to child vaccination. Child vaccination is a sensitive health topic that parents and doctors argue about, were some say that vaccination can be harmful for their children, others say that it might prevent their children from getting sick. What is Child vaccination? Child vaccination is the process of injecting dead bacteria or viruses in our body for our immune system to recognise as a pathogen^1 and fight that particular pathogen. Also the pathogen is being recognised by our body for the future, so our body can defeat this particular pathogen faster in the future and a person won’t get the disease.
leprae, will not develop full-blown leprosy, as our immune systems are strong enough to fight off the bacteria. People who are infected and develop the disease are likely to have genes which make them susceptible to the infection. After infection however, it is important to receive treatment as soon as possible in order to kill the bacteria disease and avoid other complications which may occur if left untreated – such as blindness, disfiguration of the face, erectile dysfunction, kidney failure, permanent damage to the inside of the nose and nerves outside the brain and spinal
