Humanity, perhaps, its history is a relentless fight against bacteria, inventing all new and new "tools" for this battle. And most recently, as reported by the editors of the journal of the American Chemical Society, has developed a new way to prevent bacterial infections by using nanopreparations "slow motion". According to scientists, this method is much more effective than previously used methods. Besides, it is suitable for the treatment of infectious diseases and prevention.

According to published information, the expert group of the Department of biochemistry and Microbiology at Rutgers University have developed a nanostructured particles of quartz which can bear the necessary dosage of the drug. According to associate Professor at Rutgers University Jeffrey Boyd,

"it is Interesting that the particles were more efficient at eliminating bacteria than antimicrobials that may be the way to find a more effective mechanism of drug delivery. Bacteria quickly evolve and become resistant to antimicrobial drugs. New data can help to establish methods of dealing with inficirani that are difficult to handle in traditional ways."

The New mechanism allows the joints to highlight the antimicrobial agent in the place where it is really needed, which is a huge plus in comparison with conventional drugs, when they are distributed throughout the body, which is not always useful. In addition, the action starts immediately, but only after the medicine come to the right place. As prevention it is possible to "lay" such "drug bomb" and they will protect the body if it will penetrate the infection. Admitted as the colleague of Mr. Boyd was Tewodros asefa

"we have created New materials allow antibiotics to be more powerful and give the opportunity to effectively destroy bacteria in much smaller concentrations. This is due to the fact that the nanomaterials by means of chemotaxis (roughly speaking, the movement toward certain chemicals) allow antibacterial agents to localized exactly where you want them."
