Innovative Medical Discoveries
The past year for science has been very productive. Scientists have achieved in the field of medicine particular progress. Mankind has made wonderful discoveries, scientific breakthroughs, and created many useful medications that will be certainly soon in public access. We find dozens of the most amazing medical breakthroughs, which certainly will make a major contribution to development of health care services in near future.
In 2014, the World Health Organization has warned of fact that humanity is entering the era of the so-called postantibiotic era. And it was right. Science and medicine already in 1987 did not produce truly new types of antibiotics. However, the disease does not stand still. Every year new infection appear, being more resistant to existing drugs. It was a real world problem. Nevertheless, in 2015, scientists have made a discovery that, in their opinion, will bring dramatic changes.
Scientists have discovered a new class of antibiotics consisting of 25 antimicrobial agents, including a very important one, known as teixobactin. This antibiotic «kills» bacteria by blocking their ability to produce new cells. In other words, microbes under the influence of this medication can not grow and develop resistance to the drug over time. Nowadays teixobactin has proven to be highly effective in the fight against resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and several bacteria causing tuberculosis.
