The scientists were able to dig new antibiotics directly out of the ground

New antibiotics in the truest sense of remove from the ground. Scientists from The Rockefeller University in the US found in the soil of substances that destroy Staphylococcus aureus and may help combat other antibiotic-resistant infections.


For the first time in 30 years, scientists have discovered in the soil of a new kind antibiotics’. Experiments suggest that the family antibiotics’ called multidyne able to destroy many of the so-called superbugs, including the most dangerous of their kind – methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Malacitana have a unique approach to the destruction of pathogens as affect the wall of the cells bacteria’s and it does not cause resistance to drugs shown by laboratory tests, conducted by American scientists. When using the new category of antibiotics researchers are working on MRSA skin infections in rats, there have been no side effects. This gives hope that scientists will have a non-toxic alternative to existing antibacterial drugs.

Earlier, representatives of the world health organization has compared the growing crisis of antibiotic-terrorism. It is argued that in the absence of any fundamental changes in antibiotic resistance will bring us back to the XIX century, when the simplest infection and surgery threatened human life. The lack of new drugs and excessive discharge of existing antibiotics causing dangerous resistance. The who emphasizes that the problem can affect any person at any age and in any country.

New antibiotics for topical use has been successful in the sterilization of MRSA-infected skin wounds. After 24 and 72 hours after treatment with malacitana noted the disappearance of any bacterial problems in the wounds. The antibiotic showed no toxicity against animal cells even at the highest of their concentrations. And 20 days after the end of treatment tests showed no bacteria’s resistant to this new antibiotic. It is now necessary to test its efficacy on humans.
