Things to know about Honey

Honey is an ancient remedy for the treatment of infected wounds, which has recently been rediscovered by the medical profession.The use to which honey is put in medical care is increasing daily with many authors pointing out its importance and role in wound care.There have been reports that honey contains many microorganisms including bacteria and fungi.
Their are various uses, organisms commonly found in honey, how the organisms arrived in the honey and their effects on wounds and wound care are what experts are doing research on it. Would the presence of these organisms not constitute a limiting factor to the use of honey in wound management?
A literature search was done on honey using pubmed, google, local books and journals. Relevant journals were extracted and discussed with emphasis on the antimicrobial properties as well as microbial content of honey and the implications of these.
Results:The production of honey as well as the storing process account for the presence of microorganisims. Most of these organisms are said to be in inactive forms as they can hardly survive in honey because of its several properties including hygroscopicity, hyperosmolarity, acidity, peroxide content, antibiotic activities etc. However there is a need for caution in the use of honey in wound management.
Researchers and scientists suggest that wounds to be treated with honey should be investigated i.e with a swab for the microorganisms present on the wound and their sensitivity to the honey before commencing honey treatment.This will help in carefully selecting wounds that might do well with honey treatment not withstanding other properties of honey that aid wound healing.

Microbial Biotechnology 2018 : Marine Microbiology

Marine microbiology is the study of the microorganisms (bacteria, archaea, viruses and microbial eukaryotes) in the marine environment, including their biodiversity, ecology and biogeochemistry. The use of metagenomics has been fundamental in revealing the abundance and composition of marine microbial ecosystems. Marine animals live in intimate contact with their aquatic environment that is characterized by diverse and abundant microorganisms. In the past decade marine microbiology has emerged as an important and dynamic discipline.

Marine microbiology study also deals with the determination of healthy and threatened marine organisms, assessing baseline microbial communities associated with healthy marine systems and understanding the role of microbes in coral health and disease and the beneficial factors affecting coral reef resistance and resilience. Methods combine field assessments with microbiological and molecular techniques. Interns assist with microbial culturing, DNA sequencing, PCR, cloning and there is potential to sample via snorkeling and/or SCUBA. Interns should have a basic microbiology background and an interest in coral reef protection.

PCR-based diagnostics for infectious diseases

PCR-based diagnostics for infectious diseases: uses, limitations, and future applications in acute-care settings.

Molecular diagnostics are revolutionising the clinical practice of infectious disease. Their effects will be significant in acute-care settings where timely and accurate diagnostic tools are critical for patient treatment decisions and outcomes. PCR is the most well-developed molecular technique up to now, and has a wide range of already fulfilled, and potential, clinical applications, including specific or broad-spectrum pathogen detection, evaluation of emerging novel infections, surveillance, early detection of biothreat agents, and antimicrobial resistance profiling. PCR-based methods may also be cost effective relative to traditional testing procedures. Further advancement of technology is needed to improve automation, optimise detection sensitivity and specificity, and expand the capacity to detect multiple targets simultaneously (multiplexing).

Cancer Fighting Chemical: Found in Human Skin Bacteria

A strain of Staphylococcus epidermis found on human skin contains a chemical with cancer-fighting abilities.

The presence of this strain may provide natural protection, or it might be used therapeutically to inhibit the growth of various forms of cancer. After examining the antimicrobial properties of skin bacteria, researchers came across a strain of S. epidermis that produced 6-N-hydroxyaminopurine (6-HAP), a molecule that resembles adenine, a key constituent of DNA. After further examination they found that 6-HAP blocked the activity of DNA polymerase, an enzyme required for the formation of DNA. They also discovered that 6-HAP was able to inhibit the proliferation of various types of tumor cells, such as melanoma and lymphoma, in a dish. The chemical did not inhibit the growth of normal human skin cells, because they possess 6-HAP-deactivating enzymes that were not present on cancerous cells.

Latest Research on Soil Microbiology

Researchers identified novel gene products, including peptides and enzymes, that can provide resistance to classes of antibiotics used to combat a range of bacterial infections, including those that cause strep throat and chlamydia.

Topp and colleagues collected soil samples from farm plots in London, Canada, that the team had exposed to antibiotics for up to 16 years. The researchers extracted DNA from the samples, then cloned fragments of specific sequences into a strain of E. coli sensitive to antibiotics. When the researchers put the altered E. coli in petri dishes with various antibiotics, they saw some colonies were able to grow, indicating the transfected DNA fragments conferred resistance. Through sequencing, they identified 34 new antibiotic resistance genes.

With advanced genomic techniques, studies such as Topp’s are helping researchers understand the diversity of resistance compounds in the environment, says bacterial epidemiologist Kimberly Cook of the United States Department of Agriculture. Antibiotic resistance genes are naturally present in soil bacteria, and some may work in ways not yet identified in clinical bacteria. The best way to ensure pathogens can’t recruit antibiotic resistance genes from the environment is by not putting them there in the first place, Topp notes. He suggests a push for continued reduction of antibiotic use in food animal production through regulatory and economic measures, which would reduce the amount of antibiotics that enter into the agricultural system through the spread of manure.

If we reduce the presence of antibiotics in the environment, we will reduce selection of resistant bacteria. Antibiotics kill or inhibit susceptible bacteria but not resistant ones. Hence, overload of antibiotics in the environment enriches resistant populations.

Fresh tap water is teeming with harmless microbial life, and water that sits for a few days inside pipes can contain millions of bacteria. Although incidents of waterborne infections resulting from indoor plumbing are rare, the new model may help public health authorities assess drinking-water quality.

Bacteria that live in tap water exist in two communities -- those that float freely in the water and those that live in the films that line the sides of pipes, called biofilms. Biofilms are much like the films that we see growing on the glass in fish tanks, Liu said. The team believes that the bacteria they see in the post-stagnation samples came from interactions between the water and biofilms that exist inside the pipes closest to the taps.

Bacteria in tap water can multiply when a faucet isn't used for a few days, such as when a house is vacant over a week's vacation, a new study from University of Illinois engineers found. The study suggests a new method to show how microbial communities, including those responsible for illnesses like Legionnaires' disease, may assemble inside the plumbing systems of homes and public buildings.

Industrial Microbiology: HEALTH-CARE PRODUCTS

The development and production of diagnostic assays that utilize monoclonal antibody or DNA probe technology are essential in the manufacture of health-care products such as rapid tests for strep throat, pregnancy, and AIDS. Microorganisms are also used to produce human or animal biologicals such as insulin, growth hormone, antibodies, and components for cosmetics. The industrial microbiologist/biotechnologist may screen new microbial sources (e.g., marine or cave-dwelling microorganisms) for their ability to produce new pharmaceuticals or develop new diagnostic assays.

Microbial healthcare products have now gained huge application in both primary and sec-
ondary human healthcare systems irrespective of whether people are living in underdevel-
oped or developed countries. In the primary healthcare system, microbial products can play
a role in immunization, prevention of locally endemic diseases, treatment of common dis-
eases, and others, whereas their use and application is fully warranted in secondary health-
care systems for more organized treatment in hospitals for complicated infectious diseases
and in chemotherapy.

Microorganisms have been utilized by human beings for centuries in view of their biochemical features and for the production of healthcare products. This can still be regarded as a very early phase of biotechnology, with the best possible economic use of microorganisms in food and allied industries.
