Efficiency of Antibiotic Resistance Gene Term Paper

… What is Known about Tetracycline?

Tetracyclines and its derivatives are antibiotics which inhibit the bacterial growth by stopping protein synthesis in the bacteria. Bacteria must synthesis proteins into energy in order to survive, mush in the same way we synthesize fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy that can be used in our body's various systems. Teetracycline compounds have been widely used for the past forty years as therapeutic agent in medicine. The emergence of bacterial resistances to these antibiotics has n limited their use in recent times. Three different specific mechanisms of tetracycline resistance have been identified: tetracycline efflux, ribosome protection and tetracycline modification [23].These are common mechanisms found in other situations and will be discussed in detail.

Tetracycline efflux is acccomplished through thhe use…. [read more]

Genetically Modified Crops Foods and Hormones in Meat Supply Research Paper

… Genetically Modified Crops/Foods and Hormones in Meat Supply

Genetically modified crops or foods result from genetically modified organism. Genetically modified foods are of great importance despite the concerns raised because they will help in solving the food crisis. Use of genetically modified foods have its challenges and the most common one being the transfer of genes from the genetically modified crops to the weeds and other unwanted plants when they disperse their seeds and pollen. This might eventually bring about weeds that are resistant to herbicides. They can also leave their residues in the meat and this will bring about side effects when consumed (Lessick, Keithley, Swanson & Lemon, 2002). This paper will analyze the effect genetically modified crops/foods and hormones in meat supply. How…. [read more]

Scientific and Political Term Paper

… The companies that produce them, such as the United States, want to make a profit on them because they have put a lot of resources into making them. It is these poorer countries, who might benefit most from the technology, which most likely would not be able to afford to buy the seeds. In 2003, countries that grew 99% of the global GM crops were the United States (63%), Argentina (21%), Canada (6%), Brazil (4%), and China (4%), and South Africa (1%). Although growth is expected to plateau in industrialized countries, it is increasing in developing countries. Unfortunately, the new advances in genetically modified foods are most likely skewed to the interests of rich countries, instead of the poorer ones advocates of genetically modified foods….

Knowing More About Genetically Modified Foods Essay

… The required sufficient information on safety tests has not been met. There are still no clinical studies published in peer-reviewed publications on the effects of genetically modified foods on human health. Testing methods used at present are not yet adequate. Animal trials should be conducted to assess the possible poisonous effects of genetically modified foods. Another objection is the difficulty in estimating the likelihood of their inducing allergy, as the insertion of a non-allergenic gene can arouse already existing allergens. GM food labeling is still another concern. Despite a global consensus, an internationally agreed system of labeling does not appear likely in the near future (Maghan & Ardekani).

Best Practice to Isolate MRSA Essay

… , 2006) of isolation from a third of the studies. Concerning these inadequate or lacking conclusions, the evidence provided was weak due to poor design, major confounders, or systematic bias with regression to the evidence of average (Cooper et al., 2003; Allen 2006 and Blumeberg et al. 2006). However, this review chose some studies that offered stronger evidence. In three studies, the use of isolation and other interventions was conflicting (Carrbone et al. 2002; Charlebois 2002; Cohen 2005), one showed reduced infection (Cohen, 2005; Curran et al. 2005), while another showed no infection and another managing infection for some years until the number (Robert et. al., 2006) of colonized patients on admission overwhelmed the hospital (Gbanguide-Haore et al., 2008).

However, another study provided evidence that…. [read more]
