The modern world is at a dead end, with the advancing MRSA and a strain of E-coli.
Many moons ago, at a seminar arranged by a corporate hospital at Salem, the topic was antibiotics.
Many a prominent speaker has spoken on the latest in anti biotics,we had a speaker from Chennai, who pleaded with the grass root physicians not to explore the latest in anti biotics, and ruin the treatment when we send them for acute conditions to the super special hospitals with non treatable conditions.
The best would be to let the immune system tackle the problem with out anti biotics, or to select that which would be a first line of cure with simple anti biotics.
He said it has been years since a new anti biotic has been invented and it was a costly project, Please do not go and shoot a cannon when a rifle would do, at an organism.
Better still would be to develop a system that which would not be invasive to a germ. Any takers.
