Actually best give conventional DSM psychiatry a miss all together since it is merely a labeling system for health insurance rather than a valid treatment solution.
An antipsychotic drug used to treat schizophrenia apparently paves the way for developing antibiotics to kill drug-resistant bacteria by knocking out a piece of the bug’s cell wall, researchers in Denmark reported today. The finding could help launch new ways to treat the global health threat of bacteria that have outwitted many, or in some cases all, existing antibiotics.
In the study, which appears today in the journal PLoS ONE, investigators at the University of Southern Denmark examined how thioridazine acted on methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus grown in culture. “When we treat the bacteria with antibiotics alone, nothing happens,” study author Janne Kudsk Klitgaard, PhD, said in a statement. “But when we add thioridazine, something happens. Thioridazine weakens the bacterial cell wall by removing glycine from the cell wall.”
In Staphylococcus bacteria, the amino acid glycine helps form the scaffold of the cell wall. Removing it weakens that scaffold and…
