Professor Khan Discovers Molecules To Be Used As Drug For Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria

New Delhi:  In 2014, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) academic and scientist, Professor Asad U Khan found highly resistant 'New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase-4 (NDM-4)' Superbug in an Aligarh sewage. According to a statement from the university, with hard work and consistent efforts, Prof Khan has now discovered new molecules effective against multi-drug resistant bacterial infections which will be used as an antibiotic drug.

Prof Khan's new discovery will now leave physicians and scientists with a great sigh of relief, said the statement from the AMU.

"No molecules have yet been launched to control Metallo-betalactamases producing bacterial infections, these newly discovered molecules have shown good activity against the Superbug and its variants," said Prof Khan.

Meanwhile his study on the discovery has been published in the leading International journal, 'Scientific Report of Nature Publishing Group'. Prof Khan has also developed a Gene editing technology to control biofilm mediated infections and a report on this technology was published in internationally known, 'Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology'.

Prof Khan is recognized for his contribution in the area of antibiotic resistance and drug designing. He has also been conferred with the National Bioscience Award of Government of India in 2012.
