Cockroach Brains Containing Antibiotics Helpful


During this cockroach is known as a dangerous animal health, nasty, bias found in the damp and dirty. However, scientists believe that cockroaches appeared to have tremendous benefits for health.

According to the Daily Mail, testing has found the tissue of the brain and nervous system of insects can kill more than 90 percent of MRSA and E-coli without harming human cells. Simon Lee, a postgraduate researcher at the University of Nottingham said, the cockroach has strong antibiotic properties after discovering nine different molecules in cockroach tissues that are toxic to bacteria.

He said: “We hope molecules could eventually be developed into drugs for E-coli and MRSA infections are increasingly vulnerable to current drugs.” These new antibiotics could potentially provide alternatives to currently available drugs, the drugs currently possible effective but have serious side effects and unwanted. “

He added: “Insects often live in unhealthy environments and unhygienic where they face different kinds of bacteria. Therefore logical ways memngembangkan insect defenses to protect themselves against micro-organisms.” Mr Lee’s research focuses on the study of specific properties of the antibacterial molecules are currently being tested in these super bugs.

According to the Society for General Microbiology, the pharmaceutical industry is generating fewer and fewer new antibiotics due to lack of financial incentives, so that high demand for alternative sources of new drugs. Tomorrow, Mr Lee will present his findings at a meeting of scientists friends before the fall at the University of Nottingham.

Dr. Naveed Khan oversees the work Lee. He said: “Insects super as MRSA have developed resistance to standard therapies and treatments that we do.

“They have demonstrated the ability to untreatable infections, and have become a major threat in our fight against bacterial diseases. Thus, there is a constant need to find additional sources of novel antimicrobials to confront this menace.”
