Bacteriophages: The Enemies of Our Enemies

... than their progenitors. Phage therapy: per aspera Discovery of viruses that kill bacteria gave rise to a new method for the control of bacteria. The most evident application is phage therapy, i.e. the use of bacteriophages for treating human bacterial infections. An advantage of this approach is a most stringent specificity of phages, affecting only their “favorite” infectious agents. For medical purposes, bacteriophages were first used as early as 1915, when Félix d’Hérelle, one of their discoverers,...

Bird Flu, an Old Foe

... cells that line the gastrointestinal tract, and is excreted in high concentrations with faeces into the environment, including water, where it can stay active up to six months, depending on the conditions. Accordingly, the main way of transmission of infection is faecal-oral. It is remarkable that in the majority of cases the virus does not produce any visible signs of disease: the individuals are latent virus carriers. Obviously, such avirulent nature of infection in ducks and other waterfowl is ...
