LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria, or superbugs, are a growing threat to public health around the world and as bacteria become more resistant to the antibiotics used to treat them, they become more-deadly. According to Infiniti Research, people infected with MDR microorganisms have a mortality rate of 25%-60%. This is driving healthcare market researchers to find new ways of treating these infections.

Healthcare market trends and developments
One area of research that scientists are currently focusing on is bacteriophages, or viruses that specifically kill bacteria. Phages can target specific strains of bacteria and avoid some of the side effects that come with antibiotics. Also, unlike chemical antibiotics, phages can evolve if bacteria develop a resistance against them. Currently, research has found that bacteriophages can reduce bacteria levels of mice infected with superbugs, suggesting that they could do the same in humans. While further research is necessary, this is a promising development towards protecting against these dangerous infections.
