Antibiotic resistance is becoming a more serious problem now, so phages
are a good alternative," Chan said in the study.
3 There are worldwide efforts to develop credible phage
therapies to control S.
There's a lot of exciting work that has to be done to look into the efficacy of phage
as a replacement of antibiotics.
Additionally, a preliminary bacterial challenge test in milk has been assessed to determine the effectiveness of phages
In this study, the researchers investigated the possibility of recruiting phages
in the fight against antibiotic-resistant bacteria, reviving the original idea of Felix d'Herelle, proposed in 1926.
are classed as GRAS--or "generally recognized as safe"--and are commonly used for a variety of different applications, from controlling Listeria in cheese and E.
showing consistent lytic activity against B.

The research of the biological properties of the phages
was performed with the methods suggested by M.
cocktail was then tested on grapevines grown in a greenhouse.
EFDG1 was found to work in combating the bacteria, and succeeded both in vitro and ex vivo in tissue samples, suggesting the phage
can stop infection following root canals.
coli O157:H7 occurred at 5 C in the presence of phage
FAHEc1 at greater than 107 plaque-forming units per ml in broth in vitro.
