Scientists at HerbalScience Develop a Synergistic Method to Fight Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria
Date:10/1/2013

Wentworth, Ph.D., Director of Biology at HerbalScience.

"The HerbalScience Biology Team was quite impressed by the very positive results generated by their preclinical studies which included studies conducted using human blood plasma.  The HerbalScience biology team repeated the MRSA growth inhibition studies out to 500 generations. These studies not only confirmed that the initial finding was replicated each and every time but also confirmed that HSG1004 did not develop resistance over those generations. In additional good news, Dr. Wentworth's team also studied the new antibiotic/HSG1004 natural product combination in MRSA resistance studies. In the 500 generations treated with the combination therapy thus far, not one of the generations of MRSA have become resistant, compared to the oxacillin antibiotic alone developing resistance at approximately 150 generations. This positive data has been well received by groups interested in licensing our natural compound." said Robert Gow Executive Chairman of HerbalScience Group.

Each time conventional antibiotics are incorrectly prescribed or misused, bacteria like S. aureus are able to survive exposure to these antibiotics and subsequently develop resistance by changing their genetic code to destroy or bypass the antibiotic's activity, thus creating antibacterial resistant strains of bacteria, such as the MRSA we face today. The ability of bacteria to quickly become resistant to antibiotics has caused both increasing prescription doses of standard antibiotics, like methicillin and oxacillin, as well as the need for development of new antibiotics, both of which increase toxicity, to continue to fight these resistant bacterial infections.

The synergy created by combining  HerbalScience's natural product with the USFDA approved generic antibiotic is an important discovery because it reveals a potential MRSA treatment solutio
