When antibiotics came along, it seemed that humans were winning the war against sickness. Yet recently, harmful bacteria are making a comeback and slowly, but surely, are becoming resistant to the many antibiotics that are available today. Through evolution and natural selection, bacteria have mutated and multiplied so quickly scientists can hardly keep up. Soon the world could be facing another pandemic, and the ones from the past left more than a small dent on the human population. Though evolution is impossible to stop, humans have also played a role in speeding up the process of antibiotic resistant bacteria; from misdiagnosing illnesses to dumping old antibiotics in the trash, all over the world people play a role in whether we win or lose this battle against bacteria.
I believe penicillin will eventually one day be in one of those situations where every infection is resistant to it because people abuse the antibiotic for other things that do not necessarily need antibiotics. Plus more and more superbugs and pan-resistant infections are being made and none of them will be able to use the penicillin or antibiotics. Overall penicillin is an incredible drug and has become very prosperous and will hopefully last a pretty long time, but if it doesn’t there are always new discoveries to come up with and make the medical world even better than before.
Antibiotic remained effective against most bacterial infection, however these bacterial cells develop resistance and continue to divide resulting in a resistant population and some are no longer effective against infectious disease that was killed few years ago (Levy, 2000). The impact of antibiotic resistance could lead to more infectious diseases that are hard to treat and could result in a global threat making it difficult as mutation and evolutionary pressure cause increase in antibiotic resistance (Strelkauskas et al, 2010). Antibiotics are extremely important medicine but unfortunately bacteria become resistant make it problematic as antibiotic resistance had posed problem around the world people continued to travel and modern technology and sociology exacerbated the development of resistant strains, these strains are transferred from infected people causing a repeat in cycle as they moved from one place to the next (WHO, 2001). Increased globalisation is responsible for resistance, in large overpopulated cities... ... middle of paper ... ...a also modified penicillin binding proteins. Some resistant bacteria could be dangerous for example; MRSA and the vancomycin resistant staphylococcus auerus that are virulent in human pathogens (Strelkauskas, 2010) by reducing the permeability of their membranes as a way of keeping out antibiotic by turning off production of porin and other proteins (Weston, 2008), for example; the multi-drug resistant mycobacterium tuberculosis.
Instead, these infections are caused by viruses which, unlike bacteria, are unaffected by antibiotics. Incorrect diagnosis can also lead patients to using unnecessary antibiotics, which can sometimes be even more dangerous than otherwise left untreated. Besides the fact that antibiotics kill off beneficial bacteria in the intestines, misuse of antibiotics provides an opportunity ... ... middle of paper ... ... antibiotic resistance has quickly become an increasing concern in recent times due to the growing use of antibiotics. To combat this problem, we propose that healthy intestinal floras be maintained after antibiotic resistance using fecal bacteriotherapy, and that processes of lateral gene transfer be disrupted before antibiotic resistance through the use of copper surfaces and after antibiotic resistance through synthesized CSPs. Continuing research in these solutions as well as implementing these strategies into mainstream medicine will certainly reduce the frequency of antibiotic resistance along with incidences of serious disease outbreaks in hospitals.
It is spread even more rapidly when in combination with poor hand washing techniques as discussed earlier. The problem with sharing personal items is that many diseases and infections have incubational periods that are asymptomatic. The principal to keep in mind is that it is impossible to tell just by inspection what kind of microbes a person may be housing. In most cases, “better safe than sorry” is a reliable rule of thumb when it comes to borrowing or letting others borrow your personal
Without the child becoming exposed to attenuated viruses at an earlier age, their body’s immune system will not know how to defend itself, and symptoms will be a lot more drastic. Vaccinations cause autism in adolescents? it has never been proven scientifically through years of research; Fraudulent data has always been the outcome. It’s certainly true that vaccinating your child at an early age is very risky, and can cause them to get very sick. But while concerned parents are in fear of their child’s health, it is also true that “all living things are subject to attack from disease causing agents (“Human”).
This Severely increases the risk of diseases which can be detrimental to the person and may even cause death. In these circumstances that the adictis are in, they don 't have the resources for each person to have their own needle so they just share them. When they share needles not only are they spreading the diseases that are around them, they are sharing blood which transmits blood born pathogens. This image does not necessarily say all of this. It requires deep thought and emotion and this is why it is such a good representation of
It is very contagious, and pyogenes travels quickly through places where bacteria flourish, such as schools and health institutions. The body cannot fight this bacterium very well without help, and S. pyogenes was a common cause of death until the introduction of antibiotics in the twentieth century. It has a number of ways to subdue the immune system, but it is almost completely vulnerable to penicillin, even after decades of exposure. While generally no more than a nuisance, this bacterium continues to be an interesting topic of discussion. (6,3,2) General Contraction: Streptococcus pyogenes is thought to live benignly within one in five people, and is thusly one of the most common pathogens among humans.
The surgery only works if you see your doctor as soon as you think that you ... ... middle of paper ... ... Necrotizing fasciitis is rare, but is becoming more common. It is also very destructive to your body. Necrotizing fasciitis is found everywhere. Since it is caused by a bacteria (or multiple bacteria), if you or a place has that bacteria, you have the chance of getting necrotizing fasciitis. Most people already have multiple bacteria that cause it living in them, or it exists in the location.
The result might be a minor inconvenience to you as the host, or it could result in a slow or rapid death. It depends only on which variant of this unwanted infiltrator overcomes your body’s defenses. There are cures to wipe out some types of these invisible intruders, but others are so difficult to eradicate or so readily adaptable, that the world’s greatest scientists have failed to defeat them. This isn’t the beginning of a medical thriller; it is simply a description of the common viruses that surround and infect us every day. From the common cold to cancers, viruses plague humans with disease and misery.
