Cockroach antibiotics

antibiotico-cucaracha Cockroaches , insects that most people consider repulsive, hide in their brain up to nine molecules from which antibiotics could be produced , according to a study by the University of Nottingham (United Kingdom) presented at the latest meeting of the Society General of Microbiology.

These molecules have the ability to fight more than 90 percent of resistant strains of bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus (the cause of many food poisoning) and Escherichia coli . Scientists suspect that, to survive in the unhealthy environments in which they move, cockroaches have developed sophisticated mechanisms capable of coping with microorganisms.

"At the moment we are studying the antibacterial properties of these molecules in the laboratory and we hope they can be used to develop new effective antibiotics against these pathogens", explained Simon Lee, co-author of the work.
