Bacteriphage therapy for control of food borne pathogens
Sujata Jagadish, Mahantesh SP
Bacteriophages are bacterial viruses which attack on the cells of harmful bacteria and destroy the whole metabolism of bacteria. Bacteriophage therapy has proved to be very helpful in treating various infections and diseases like skin infections caused by Klebsiella and E. Coli and several chronic bacterial diseases.rnThis study highlights the usage of bacteriophage therapy for food borne Klebsiella species. In this therapy, the targeted bacteria are killed causing spreading of infections. The best part of this therapy is that it leaves no side-effects.rnKlebsiella species can be found anywhere in nature because of discrete sublineages mounting explicit alcove adaptations, with related biochemical adaptations which make them better suited to a meticulous surroundings. They can be found in water, soil, plants, insects, animals, and humans.
