Abstract :

Due to their potency against bacterial illnesses, the manufacture and use of antibiotics both greatly rose after World War II. However, bacterial resistance also developed and is currently a significant global problem. The high-risk individuals who require the most intensive treatment include those who suffer burns and various other wounds, and also those who have infections of the lungs caused by bacteria that have antibiotic-resistant, such as P. aeruginosa, Acinetobacter sp., & Staphylococci. While funding for the research for novel antibiotics is decreasing, it is imperative to identify and develop alternate treatment strategies to deal with this issue. Phage (bacteriophage) therapy is one method that is becoming more and more popular. The rapid development of resistance to antibiotics in Staphylococcus aureus is the main topic of this investigation. Phage therapy's potential in this situation is also discussed, as is its suitability for high-risk patients.
