EDITORIAL.- NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, researchers from the US found isolation bacteria tensions at the International Space Station (ISS), due to the fact that they were resistant to drugs, increasing concerns about potential implications. in future health missions.
According to the research published in the BMC Microbiology, the five tensions of Enterobacter bugandensis were identified in samples from an ISS toilet and exercise platform in 2015. The genetic composition of individual tensions was accurate and comparable, all of the public Enterobacter genomes were collected on the ground.
The results demonstrated that the genome genome of the ISS sample was very similar to the three-stroke stresses of E. bugandensis in recent years due to infections caused by infections in newborns and elderly patients.
The study of functional and antimicrobial resistance of five voltages bacteria has shown that the five most commonly used antibiotics have demonstrated endurance (including penicillin) and two "medium resistance." This pathogen is found in the treatment of the human intestine, waste water and soil, and many nosocomial infections are linked.
Dangerous or not?
Recently, genetic material has been seen to increase the competition of bacteria on foreign microgravity and increase the resistance of metals and antibiotics to factors that are more likely to cause STR strains.
The researchers predict the probability of a 79% predicted by computer analysis for human illnesses.
According to Kasthuri Venkateswaran, the main author of the research, it depends on whether the ISS causes the disease and how many organisms it threatens, depending on many factors (environmental, space, etc.).
"More studies are needed to find out about the implications of the impacts of IN-IN-IA conditions on pathogenesis," he concluded.
