Bacteriophage for treatment of cow mastitis


This preparation is a sterile filtrate of phage lysates of Staphylococci (S. aureus and S. epidermidis), Streptococci (S. pyogenes and S. agalactiae) and random serovars of E.coli. This preparation is poured in 10 ml ampoules. This preparation is used for treatment of mastitis dis-eased animals.

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

Cow mastitis is an important economic problem of most countries including USA, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Israel and others. Treatment of the disease in cows is currently performed via intra mammary administration of antibiotics. However, the action of these drugs is sometimes inefficient because some mastitis-inducing bacteria are drug-resistant. In addition, high doses of antibiotics negatively influence milk quality. Use of bacteriophage or bacteriophage-based therapies offers some distinct advantages over antibiotic therapy use. Most phages are highly specific for their host bacteria and the process of bacteriophage infection will continue exponentially until all sensitive bacteria are destroyed. Most important is their safety for the animals and environment these distinguish bacteriophage therapy from antibiotic therapy and make the former highly attractive.
