Healthy Living: Maine Mud – It’s A Good Thing?

Updated 1 week ago

TV 5 Health Advisor Doctor Bill Sturrock explains:

Earlier this month, the journal ‘Nature’ reported on the findings of a research team from Northeastern University based on samples taken from the dirt in a southern Maine field. This seemingly obscure newsbit holds the potential of being the biggest microbiologic breakthrough in the past 30 years. The research team, led by Dr Kim Lewis, used a new technique of isolating and growing bacteria that previously could not be cultured by the standard lab techniques like the venerable Petri-dish. They discovered a bacterium that produces a unique toxin they have labeled ‘teixobactin’, which can kill other bacteria by a cellular mechanism that is unique among the other antibiotic classes. This new drug has already shown activity against known germs such as Methicillen-Resistant Staph (MRSA) in mice, as well as a host of other human pathogens in cell cultures. Although it is a long way from being mass produced and marketed, it holds great promise for treating many powerful organisms that have developed resistance to our available treatment agents.
