Phagebiotics for a Healthy Life

... against several bacterial pathogens known to interfere with wound healing. Two examples of such preparations are “Pyo-bacteriophage” produced by the Eliava Institute of Bacteriophages, Microbiology and Virology in Tbilisi, Georgia, and “Complex pyobacteriophage” produced by NPO Microgen . In the same context, the first phage therapy trial for human wound infections in the USA utilized a multivalent phage preparation containing eight different phages lytic for three bacterial pathogens commonly found in infected wounds: Escherichia coli , Staphylococcus aureus , and ...

Phages Attack # A History of Bacteriophage Production and Therapeutic Use in Russia

... results showed the great importance of the prevention of purulent complications in wounds through the use of bacteriophages, which were not only completely harmless but also widely available, inexpensive and easy-to-manufacture therapeutic agents. Bacteriophages in the Battle of Stalingrad The further history of phage therapy is associated with the tragic events of World War II in 1941–1945. In those years, with a total lack of antibacterial drugs (at the beginning of the war, the Soviet Union did not have a technology to produce penicillin), it was decided ...

Bacteriophages: 100 years in the service of mankind

... sequencing method of the same name Genetic modifications serve to change the phage specificity and increase the efficacy of phage therapy. To achieve this, the most aggressive phages are fitted with recognition structures binding them with the target ... ... metabolism – ​such phages are more deadly for bacteria. Bacteria have several mechanisms protecting them from antibiotics and bacteriophages; one such mechanism is the destruction of virus genomes by restriction enzymes targeting specific nucleotide ...

Truth about Phage Therapy or a Memo to Physicians and Patients

... applied in medicine, our knowledge about the diversity of these viruses, about mechanisms of their interaction with bacteria, and about competition with their cognates is still insufficient to use their full therapeutic potential. Safe and Efficient Phage therapy emerged almost immediately after bacteriophages were discovered; however, expanded trials of these antibacterial tools were launched in the Soviet Union only in the late 1930s. The trials proved the efficiency of bacteriophages as preventive measures against dysentery and cholera epidemics,...

Phages in Your Garden # Problems and prospects of bacteriophage applications in horticulture

... encapsulated products provides protection against pathogens in the early stages of plant development. To implement phage control of plant diseases in modern agriculture, it is very important to have a clear understanding in what agronomic situations bacteriophages are the most effective. Phage therapy is most successful in closed biological systems with controllable physical conditions. It is almost impossible to achieve these ideal conditions on large agricultural fields; however, this does not mean that phage products cannot be effective ...

Bacteriophages: The Enemies of Our Enemies

... Moreover, bacterial mutants resistant to phages are usually less pathogenic 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,...
