Assigning soil medicinal properties
A member of the research team, Gerry Quinn, a former resident of Boho, in Fermanagh County, announced many years of healing traditions.
Traditionally, a small dirt was collected in a cotton cloth and cured ailments, such as toothache, throat and neck infections. Interestingly, earlier Druid occupied this area some 1500 years ago, and Neolithic was 4,000 years ago.
The most important findings of the study The characteristics of Streptomyces's new stroke inhibited the increase in the number of multiresistant pathogenic identified by the WHO: healthcare-related infections: vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE) Vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Klebsiella pneumonia and carbenepenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumanii Gram-positive and Gram-negative inhibits bacteria, their cell walls are different structures; In general, bacterial Gram negative antibiotics are more resistant.
It is still unclear what the new strain component prevents the growth of pathogens, but the group is already investigating.
Dr. Swansea University School of Medicine Paul Dyson said: "The new bacterial strain is effective against 6 major antibiotics, including MRSA." Our finding is an important step forward in the fight against antibiotics.
"Our results show that traditional folklore and medicine are being investigated for new antibiotics. Scientists, historians, and archaeologists might be something that helps this task, it seems that this problem may be a part of the response to the wisdom of the past."
