MRSA and Phages blog. Please visit to register your comments and experiences of MRSA. Either personal or on behalf of a relative, all comments welcome. If anyone knows of anyone who has travelled abroad for phage therapy treatment, where our NHS has failed, please get in touch.

Doctors who trot out the same old mantras about "more research is needed" or "there is no peer reviwed evidence" are either hiding behind weasel words or they are woefully ignorant of the many international conferences on phage therapy and the effectiveness of phages against MRSA. The following extract from the Helsinki Declaration might make them feel somewhat more comfortable when facing their colleagues' prejudices.
The Helsinki Declaration states that :-

"In the treatment of a patient, where proven prophylactic, diagnostic and therapeutic methods do not exist or have been ineffective, the physician, with informed consent from the patient, must be free to use unproven or new prophylactic, diagnostic and therapeutic measures, if in the physician's judgement it offers hope of saving life, re-establishing health or alleviating suffering. Where possible, these measures should be made the object of research, designed to evaluate their safety and efficacy. In all cases, new information should be recorded and, where appropriate, published. The other relevant guidelines of this Declaration should be followed."

Phage therapy has been used successfully in the former Soviet union countries for over 80 years, especially at the Eliava Institute, in Georgia, and yet try to get advice or a referal from a UK doctor for this treatment and one is met with blank stares, mumbled statements such as "no peer reviews available" or just plain lies about "possible dangers". If it has saved countless thousands of Eastern European lives, then why is it not good enough for us? Would it have anything to do with creating delays until the pharma companies can genetically engineer their own phages and thus reap the intelectual property rights? Of course not!

The only way to bring this shameful situtation into the public domain is for people to lobby their MPs, newspapers and to form pressure groups, which is why I have started this blog. All constructive comments are welcome; offers of action even more so!
