Can viruses stop sexually transmitted infections?

Could bacteria-killing viruses ever prevent sexually transmitted infections?

Some problems with phage treatment for STIs are that it can not go after bacterial STIs, there are not any phages that can be used to make a phage combination, and the focus is on model bacteria instead of STI-causing bacteria. Phage engineering may be an option if researchers cannot identify naturally occurring phages that infect STI-causing bacteria. Phage-targeting phages, such as prophages, can be artificially modified to destroy their hosts.

Israel advances cancer treatment with genomic profiling

Prof. Aharon Popovtzer, Director of Hadassah’s Sharett Institute of Oncology, emphasized the immediate impact on patient care: "We are proud to provide cancer patients with the best molecular characterization and are convinced that it will immediately lead to an improvement in the quality of treatment for many patients". Comprehensive genomic profiling tests enable the identification of all types of genomic alterations within a tumor, shedding light on the intricate mechanisms of cancer development and growth. This precision in diagnosis empowers physicians to tailor treatments to individual patients, optimizing outcomes while minimizing unnecessary interventions.
