Scientist are working on a cure for staph infections using shark skin?
Staph infections are resistant to most antibiotics and kill more Americans than AIDS each year. Shark skin is said to be a protection against most of the algie in the waters and could then be the same for bacterial infections. Do you believe the scientists are on to something here?
Yes i do believe Scientist because in most cases they are right
Hm, Staphylococcus normally live in the human body, mostly in the skin - no wander they can never be completely destroyed by antibiotics. You cannot destroy what is natural part of your body - this bacterias are problem only when they are out of control - mostly caused by damaged immune system.
Every use of antibiotics lowers natural immune system, so body more easily develops new infections, ( due to the damaged immune system), while in the meantime has become resistant on antibiotics. In many cases, people die on that way, not because of Staphyloccoccus, but because damaged immune system cannot help fighting the excess of them.
Shark skeen for healing human skin problems? Let us think logically: since we do not live in the sea water,we cannot need same type of protection sharks have. It seems that developing such product will cause much more harm to the sharks, then to save any human life.
Personally I believe these scientists may be on to "something"... but that "something" would be unnecessary for staphyloccoccus. With the staph (MRSA) that kills so many, other scientists (who are probably not talking with the shark-skin scientists) are looking at a mechanism of MRSA that has been well understood for many years. That mechanism is involved with the immune system, but not a function of a weak immune system. The way MRSA (flesh eating bacteria) works is it eats sugar, not flesh. Then MRSA makes strong acids and that is what "eats" the flesh around the colony of MRSA. Our immune system produces hydrogen peroxide to kill the MRSA. But then the MRSA produces the enzyme catalase that decomposes our immune system's weapon, hydrogen peroxide, into oxygen and water. That is MRSA's secret weapon ... it can produce catalase! And the MRSA just chuckles and eats some more sugar. Eventually our immune system gives up. So, if you know these scientists, I'd tell them that they don't have to harm those sharks, it has already been taken care of. Try using the search terms: MRSA, treatment, pHenomenal.
