  • Antibiotics - 1,650 words
    Antibiotics Antibiotics have played a major role in our society thanks to Sir Alexander Fleming's careful observations in 1928. Without it, many lives would be in danger due to infectious diseases. Antibiotics are chemical substances produced by various species of microorganisms and other living systems that are capable in small concentrations of inhibiting the growth of or killing bacteria and other microorganisms. These organisms can be bacteria, viruses, fungi, or animals called protozoa. A particular group of these agents is made up of drugs called antibiotics, from the Greek word anti ("against") and bios ("life"). Some antibiotics are produced from living organisms such as bacteria, fu ...

  • Pseudomonas Aeruginosa - 1,568 words
    Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Pseudomonas aeruginosa Research Paper Julie Johnson Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a versatile gram negative bacterium that grows in soil, marshes, and coastal marine habitats, as well as on plant and animal tissues. People with cystic fibrosis, burn victims, individuals with cancer, and persons infected with HIV are particularly at risk of disease resulting from Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Unlike many environmental bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa has a remarkable capacity to cause disease in susceptible hosts. It has the ability to adapt to and thrive in many ecological niches, from water and soil to plant and animal tissues. The bacterium is capable of utilizing a wide range ...

  • Pseudomonas Aeruginosa - 1,520 words
    ... nosa can be found on nearly every shower curtain and drain pipe around the world. Functions of Pseudomonas aeruginosa that were previously unknown have been identified, suggesting new avenues for drugs to treat serious lung infections caused by this bacterium. Researchers now have a better understanding of why Pseudomonas aeruginosa is naturally resistant to most antibiotics. As a result, they have new ideas on how to identify antibiotics that might circumvent some of the bacterium's intrinsic drug resistance mechanisms. The bacterium was sequenced based on one particular organism, or isolate, that is the standard in laboratories. Variations are now being examined that occur when the org ...
