The book begins with four chapters that review the potential applications, possible advantages, and phylogeny of enzybiotics. Next, the book explores: A new approach to controlling infections. Enzybiotics are such a promising class of antibiotics. They are derived from endolysins, bacteriophage-encoded enzymes that degrade the bacterial cell wall of the infected cell at the end of the lytic replication cycle. Enzybiotics are featured by a rapid and unique mode-of-action, a high specificity to kill pathogens, a low probability for. Up to 90% off Textbooks at Amazon Canada.

Fischetti) has termed “ enzybiotics ” (the result of blending the words “ enzymes ” and “ antibiotics ”), for treating bacterial and fungal dis-eases, either alone or in combination with antibiotics. The book starts with four chapters in which the potential, advan-tages, and phylogeny of enzybiotics are reviewed.

Not only do enzybiotics act on contact, but they are highly species specific, meaning they can target pathogenic organisms yet are harmless to commensal organisms (i.e. good bacteria), a benefit not offered by even the most advanced antibiotic. Enzybiotics: Endolysins and Bacteriocins 17 bovine mastitis with classical antibiotics is frequently ineffective and thus alternative antimicrobial approaches are needed (Brouillette and Malouin.

Although microorganism‐degrading enzymes have been known since the beginning of the last century, their use was soon forgotten because of the widespread use of antibiotics. Enzybiotics, by using enzymes to fight bacteria, offer a novel and promising new way to combat infectious diseases. This book presents the state-of-the-art and therapeutic potential of enzybiotics, with a stress on therapeutic applications.
