The use of bacteriophage as alternatives to antibiotics

In this project we are trying to isolate bacteriophage that will attack various bacteria that are known to cause disease. After isolation, we aim to formulate these bacteriophage into dosage forms that allow their delivery to the site of infection. An example of this is our work in the formulation of bacteriophage into semi-solid bases such as creams and ointments that can be spread onto the skin to treat infections.
