Abaucin, a drug discovered by an intelligent device that will kill the largest known superbug

The Artificial intelligence It acts as an ally of humanity and makes important progress in the field of health. about scientists United States and Canada We took science a step further with the discovery of a new antibiotic capable of killing the largest superbug known. The discovery is possible thanks to the use of AI and could revolutionize the methods used in health research.

A team of doctors eMassachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)) USA and about McMaster University in Canada used this new technology to identify the drug, which they called ‘Abaucina’. The results of this scientific work were published in a journal ‘The Nature of Chemical Biology’ and the high mortality and infection exhibited by the bacterium is explained.

After its use in humans, the antibiotic will fight bacteria ‘Acinetobacter oeni’What a World Health Organization as one of the most dangerous in the world, because it is the most difficult to win. This superbug The cat is prone to fatal diseases such as pneumonia, meningitis and wound infections.

According to the researchers, Artificial intelligence has the potential to accelerate new drug discovery by predicting new antibacterial molecular structures. The technological tool is identified in two hours among a library of 7,000 candidate compounds.

Self-knowledge base

This study is based on algorithmic access to infinite molecules with antibacterial properties and their interactions, which makes the process fast compared to conventional research. Therefore, this system of time and money would be saved in other repeated scientific studies.

This process also uses machine learning algorithms. In this way, the artificial intelligence itself learns which features work best. In this case, the AI ​​identified the traits that worked best against the pathogen and provided a list of more. 6,500 compounds240, the most flourishing laboratory and nine potential antibiotics found, among them ‘Abaucina’.

drug immunity

While the bacteria are fighting based on the drugs used, very few drugs keep with them. Antibiotic resistance has become a major problem in the world to treat many infections.

These are called drug-resistant pathogens superbugs and it may become a more common cause of death than cancer in the not so near future.
