American scientists have developed a drug that can be useful against superbugs. Its name is fabimycin. During research, it was found to be capable of killing hundreds of bacteria. All these bacteria are resistant to common drugs.

Superbugs are formed by taking too much medicine

Every year 7 million people die from superbug infestation.

Every year 7 million people die from superbug infestation.

A superbug is a bacteria, virus, parasite or fungus that is not resistant to antibiotics. The main reason for a bacterium to become a superbug is to take an excessive amount of antibiotics. The chromosomes of normal bacteria break down the protein molecules of the antibiotic drug and develop resistance against them.

According to the Daily Mail report, 7 million people die every year due to superbug infestation. It should be taken as seriously as global warming.

Drug effective on more than 300 superbugs
Fabimycin is a man-made drug, which was first tested on rats. Scientists found that it cured drug-resistant pneumonia and urinary tract infections (UTIs) in mice. After further research, it was found that this drug is effective in killing more than 300 strains of superbugs.

14 versions of the drug were built

Scientists at the University of Illinois have created 14 versions of fabimycin. These can help kill superbugs that cause conditions such as skin infections, blood poisoning, and toxic shock syndrome.

These versions were tested on 10 different bacteria in mice. It also contained bacteria called E. coli, which causes UTIs. In addition K. Fabimycin was also tested on the pneumonia bacteria, which cause lung infections and pneumonia.

The growing threat of superbugs
According to the US health agency Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are 2.8 million infections each year from antibiotic resistant in the country. Out of this, about 34,000 people die. At the same time, 61,000 people are affected annually in England by superbugs.
