Combating antimicrobial resistance: an evidence-based overview of bacteriophage therapy
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) problems cause an enormous challenge to our world in medicine and in agriculture and many other fields. The current situation makes bacteriophage therapy an attractive therapeutic candidate. Nevertheless, very limited clinical trials on bacteriophage therapy were performed and completed as of presence. Bacteriophage therapy alludes to infecting bacteria with a virus, this often results in a bactericidal effect. The compiled studies support the feasibility of treating AMR with bacteriophage. However, the efficacy of specific bacteriophage strains and the accurate dosage have to be further studied and tested rigorously.
