Researchers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, USA, detected different bacterial species on the International Space Station (ISS), which were resistant to many drugs, raised concerns about the potential effects. For future health in the mission.
According to a study published in the journal BMC Microbiology, five stresses EnterBox bugs Samples taken from the toilet in 2015 and samples taken from IEE's exercise platform. The individual genetic formation was detailed and compared to all the available public enterprise GNOME composites collected on the planet.
As a result, it was revealed that ISS samples were genomes Genetically very similar E. The three subterranean stresses of Bagdensis have been identified recently Generates infections With complications in newborn and elderly patients.
Five bacterial strains demonstrated the functional and antimicrobial resistance analysis Five resistant to the most commonly used antibiotics – including penicillin- And two more "intermediate resistance" This pathogenic disease is commonly found in human pathways, sewage treatment, and soil, and is associated with a wide range of nococomicular infections.
Dangerous or not?
Recently, it has been found that bacterial competition has increased in order to obtain foreign genetic material. Microgrategy And it enhances its resistance to metals and antibiotics, the factors that can lead to LESS infestation in the future for greater intensity.
Researchers predicted by computer analysis 79% chance That this disease can lead to humans.
According to Kastuuri Venkateswaran, the main author of the research, depending on the various factors (environmental, celestial, etc.), whether ISS is the cause of the disease or not, and how many threats it represents.
"Click the & # 39; Viva & # 39; More study is essential "To convey the effect of the IAS situation on pathogenesis," he concluded.
