The Israeli researchers developed a method which will allow to determine by a luminescence of blood, which type of an infection (bacterial or virus) the disease is caused.

   Researchers from university of Ben Gurion developed a method allowing in the shortest terms to pick up the patient suitable treatment and to avoid prescription of antibiotics when they not only are useless, but also dangerous.

   Research was conducted by graduate student Darya Prilutskaya under the leadership of professor Robert Marx. The developed method is based on studying of intensity of light which radiates a blood sample.

   Light — is manifestation of unique property of a polymorphic and nuclear leukocyte to struggle with an infection and specifies that the organism can make radicals of active forms of oxygen.

   Article about this research was published in Analytical Chemistry last issue.

   Making comments on results of research, doctor Robert Marx noted that this method allows to improve and accelerate diagnostics essentially.

   It should be noted that at diagnostics it is very difficult to distinguish a virus infection from bacterial as their symptoms are usually similar. But thus this two types of an infection demand absolutely different approach to treatment. Bacterial infection treat application of antibiotics, and at a virus infection antibiotics not only are absolutely inefficient, but even are harmful as increase risk of complications and develop medicinal immunity. Modern techniques allow to make the right diagnosis, but all of them demand a large number of time.

   The method which was offered by scientists of Israel, is based on treatment of knack of a human body to struggle with infections. Cages of immune system (phagocytes) protecting an organism by absorption of harmful particles, can act as indicators by means of which it is possible to carry out diagnostics.

   At absorption by a phagocyte of a bacterium or any other alien substance, oxygen consumption which call respiratory explosion increases. At this explosion the oxygen-containing jet molecules possessing antimicrobic action are formed. As a result of oxidation of molecules of luminal there is a hemilyuminestsention. Thus, the bacterial infection can be learned on a blood luminescence.
