Part Three on Antibiotics of Tomorrow- Dr. Margaret Riley of UMASS- Amherst Explains Her Passion

Part Three on Antibiotics of Tomorrow- Dr. Margaret Riley of UMASS- Amherst Explains Her Passion

In part three of a three part Beef Buzz series with Dr. Margaret Riley of the University of Massachusetts- we continue to look at antibiotic resistance and what is needed to get companies to invest in narrow spectrum antibiotics, which she believes is the future in dealing with antibiotic resistance.

Dr. Riley says in today's Beef Buzz that it is important we pursue narrow spectrum solutions for the specific pathogens that are causing us problems in both animal ag and in human health. "That's my passion- that's why I spend time away from the lab is to make sure that people understand not just that there is a problem, which there is and it's serious, but that there are potential solutions on the horizon if we're smart enough to recognize them." She adds that will take money as this research is costly and the resulting products may not be as big a money earner as the next drug to fight diabetes or something similar.

Today's Beef Buzz goes in depth along these lines- you can also go back to pick one part one of three of Ron's Conversation with Margaret Riley by clicking here- she and Ron talk about the fact that when you use a broad spectrum antibiotic- you are actually selecting for resistance- which has been out there in the partogen world for eons.

And- you can also click here for part two of the series, where Dr. Riley talks about targeting specific pathogens impacting animals or humans- and developing a narrow spectrum antibiotic as a reponse to that pathogen.

Our three part series with Dr. Riley is a "best of" repeat from earlier this spring as we help you re-examine the work being done by this cutting edge scientist in antibiotic resistance.

The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the region on the Radio Oklahoma Network- but is also a regular audio feature found on this website as well.
