A change in medical condition can help prevent unnecessary use of antibiotics and, thus, prevent drug resistance, according to experts from the University of Bath, UK.


The essence of the development is that when it detects the release of bare bacteria from the wound, the tiny capsules release the fluorescent dye inside them - he wrote to BBC News.
All of this would make it possible for doctors to faster identification of bacterial infections, and treat them, especially in children with a history of obesity.
Even due to underdeveloped immune systems a burned children especially bacterial infections, which can slow down the healing of wounds, may result in longer medical treatment and sometimes permanent scars. In very serious cases, they can be fatal.For doctors, it is very difficult to diagnose infections quickly and easily without removing the two, but it can be painful for the patient. Because of this, antibiotics are often prescribed to the patient before the infection can be confirmed.
However, when someone gets antibiotic treatment without being infected, it can result in the bacterium being resistant to the drug: antibiotic resistance is a serious health problem. Project leader Toby Jenkins, a University of Bath associate says development can save lives.
The research team received nearly £ 1bn (£ 442m) from the British Medical Research Council to test the efficacy of the prototype binding on samples from ancient strains.
