It has not produced resistance.
Scientists from Princeton University in the US have discovered a compound that wins the most antibiotic-resistant bacteria, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.
Connection SCH-79797, which has a double effect, can pierce the walls of bacteria and destroy folic acid in their cells. While the bacteria is not produced to him of drug resistance.
Note, over the past thirty years there hasn’t been a new drug capable of killing gram-negative bacteria which, unlike gram-positive, protected by an outer layer, which protects them from most antibiotics.
As stressed by Professor Semirom Gita, SCH-79797 at the same time attacks from inside and outside, and can destroy even the strongest of opponents − from Escherichia coli to Staphylococcus and gonorrhea, resistant to all known antibiotics.
“This is the first antibiotic without resistance affects gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. We hope that in the future this will lead to the emergence of new types of antibiotics,” said Gita.
He pointed out that the connection called “resistin”.
The main problem with antibiotics is that bacteria quickly develop resistance to them, but studies have shown that no pathogen can resist SCH-79797.
So, scientists for 25 days and again subjected to pathogens effects of the drug, and even got a from the vaults of the world health organization most resistant strain of gonococcus Neisseria gonorrhoeae, which is in the top 5 of the most difficult to treat.
And in all cases resistin showed high efficiency.
