Medicine has exhausted all the possibilities of antibiotics. Viruses become more resilient and conventional treatments are no longer effective. Scientists say that if you don’t find new drugs, a global catastrophe can happen. With the invention antibiotics the average person’s life expectancy has increased in times. People ceased to die en masse from tuberculosis, flu or poliomyelitis. Accordingly, the population of the planet. Now scientists around the world are developing new modifications. antibiotics trying to enhance their effect. However, so far all is in vain. Bacteria have learned to adapt to everything, says the director Pharmexpert Research and Consulting Nikolay Bespalov. “Any microorganism over time acquires a certain resistance to antibiotics and any other substances that affect their livelihoods. Therefore separate microorganisms in the process of adaptation produce substances that destroy antibiotics. Penicillin was widely used at one time. and saved many lives – this was the first antibiotic in the world, and it is not being used now due to the fact that it is ineffective in combating those microorganisms that are now in nature. “However not only bacteria adapt to new conditions. Immunity humans also become more resistant to infections over time and viruses. This process is called the war between the world of people and the world. bacteria that lasts billions of years. Bye humanity wins, but it is possible that sometime long forgotten diseases will return in a new form, says Nikolai Bespalov. “Probability the fact that these diseases will return remains because the sick, who were dying of the plague, were once buried in special burial grounds. In Russia and other countries of the world, after the 90s, these cemeteries ceased to follow. They were plowed up, they were flooded and destroyed. There is a possibility that these microbes can somehow from there go out and spread. In any case, all of these strains are stored in laboratories. It is possible that as a result of an error or terrorist act, or for other reasons, they will all be on the loose. But, fortunately, there is vaccination, antibacterial drugs. There is no reason to assume that it will be global problem, as it was in the Middle Ages. “However, do not forget that people have learned to treat most dangerous diseases. For example, to protect against plague and smallpox, a secondary appearance predicted by some scientists, you need to re-introduce compulsory vaccinations, the expert in the field of medicinal products is sure Market Elena Volskaya. “Plague and smallpox are diseases against which the main weapon is not antibiotics, but vaccination. If parents will not be afraid to vaccinate their children, then universal vaccination completely exclude the appearance of these diseases. “However, vaccines can only protect against already known diseases. To promptly prepare a vaccine against new viruses of the same bird or swine flu, huge funds and years of clinical research. Experts say that a lot depends on person. They recommend enhancing your own immunity. Healthy the body is more resistant to viruses. In addition, at the first sign diseases must always consult a doctor: even the most dangerous diseases can be effectively treated at the initial stage.
