Gut Bacteria of Water Monitor Lizard (Varanus salvator) Are a Potential Source of Antibacterial Compound(s)
For the past few decades, there has been limited progress in the development of novel antibacterials. Previously, we postulated that the gut microbiota of animals residing in polluted environments are a forthcoming supply ...
Gut bacteria of Cuora amboinensis (turtle) produce broad-spectrum antibacterial molecules
(Nature Research, 2019)
Antimicrobial resistance is a major threat to human health, hence there is an urgent need to discover antibacterial molecule(s). Previously, we hypothesized that microbial gut flora of animals are a potential source of ...
Heterometrus spinifer: An Untapped Source of Anti-Tumor Molecules
Despite intensive research, cancer incidence and mortality continue to rise. Consequently, the necessity to develop effective anti-cancer therapy is apparent. We have recently shown that the gut bacteria of animals living ...
Scorpion and Frog Organ Lysates are Potential Source of Antitumour Activity
(Asian Pacific Organization for Cancer Prevention (APOCP), 2020)
It is noteworthy that several animal species are known to withstand high levels of radiation, and are exposed to heavy metals but rarely been reported to develop cancer. For example, the scorpion has been used as folk ...
