Proven Phage Technology for Healthier, Sustainable Food Animal Production
Food animal production has always faced challenges with respect to combating diseases and to be profitable at the same time. During the course of development of innovative ways to tackle these challenges, many antibiotics were implemented as first line of defense. The use of such antibiotics is still prevalent in order to cure diseases infecting food animals. But, due to indiscriminate use of such antibiotics, the problem of antibiotic resistance has increased and possess a threat to humans as well. Moreover, with a smaller number of antibiotics being discovered, we have less number of antibiotics to tackle with the antibiotic resistant bacteria.
In these kinds of scenarios, bacteriophages (or simply phages) comes as a savior. Phages are most abundant available organism on the planet. They are specific in nature and act against only those bacteria whom they identify.
Proteon have worked extensively on phages and developed a phage platform technology which is specific, result oriented to combat stubborn antibiotic resistant bacteria’s. Our Phage Platform Technology help us to identify phages those who are lytic in nature and help in combatting infection. This helps us to get rid of infectious bacteria without any side effects on animal and human health. The products created by this technology are sustainable in nature and does not causes development of any resistance among bacteria.
