Us today there is a huge amount of antibiotics, which are divided into several generations. Scientists northwestern and the University of California reported that their effectiveness can be significantly improved by the use of two compounds that affect the activity of NO-synthase. This substance has a protective effect on the cell wall of bacteria.
To prove their theory, the researchers conducted a series of experiments on hay Bacillus. This bacterium on its structure and properties similar to anthrax. The inhibitor of NO-synthase showed himself in the study as a very effective addition to the antibiotic.
In the application of the new ligament increased the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy, the drug quickly fell into bacterial cells and kill them.
