Need an argumentative essay on Therapeutic Uses of Bacteriophages. Needs to be 10 pages. Please no plagiarism.
The 1960s saw the revival of interest in bacteriophages and their significance in molecular biology research was explored. In the modern world, bacteria are developing resistance to a wide range of antibiotics, the problem being graver in developing countries where low doses and discontinued treatment course fails to eliminate bacteria that are resistant to a low dose of antibiotics such as tuberculosis, pneumonia, and dysentery-causing bacteria. Moreover since in more than half of the world antibiotic production is used for animals mainly as growth promoters in industrialized animal husbandry, these antibiotics easily reach the human body and further cause cross-resistance to the antibiotics used in human medicine (Lorch, 1999). Thus the urgent need to find alternatives to antibiotic therapy has led us to the field of phage therapy which has not only been well researched but also applied successfully in many European countries and the erstwhile Soviet Union. This paper aims to study the relevance and applicability aspects of phage therapy by exploring the history of progress, mechanism of action and current researches in the field of phage therapy.
