Exploring Pseudomonas Bacteriophages for Clinical and Environmental Applications

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a ubiquitous, opportunistic pathogen that poses a significant threat in healthcare settings and various environments. This versatile bacterium readily develops resistance to conventional antibiotics, making multidrug resistant (MDR) P. aeruginosa strains a major concern. Bacteriophages, or phages, offer a promising alternative as they specifically target and lyse P. aeruginosa cells. By understanding their properties and virulence specificity, our study involves isolation, characterization of P. aeruginosa phages from various water sources and their applications in both environmental decontamination and clinical therapy.
