Scientists Discover a Powerful Antibiotic in the Blood Stream of Pandas


 Scientists Discover a Powerful Antibiotic in the Blood Stream of Pandas

Never in a million years would we have guessed that panda bears, the very same creatures that tumble down slides and make us lose all sense of personal dignity over their irresistible cuteness, could hold the very key to mankind’s survival within their own bodies — or at least a handy new antibiotic. It may sound like the trite plot of the next Kung Fu Panda flick — we can only pray that doesn’t actually happen — but, we a$sure you friends, this is legitimate science. Dr. Xiuwen Yan of China’s Life Sciences College of Nanjing Agricultural University discovered that pandas naturally produce a potent antibiotic in their bloodstream that can wipe out various forms of bacteria and fungi. Scientists are eager to analyze and fully understand this panda antibiotic, hoping that it will be instrumental in the f!ght against resilient new breed of superbugs that are hard to f!ght with current drugs.


The antibiotic in question is called cathelicidin-AM, produced by the panda’s immune cells that travel throughout its bloodstream. When tested, the antimicrobial compound was recorded as eliminating bacteria with an hour of being administered. Other antibiotics, non-panda in origin, used in the experiment were noted as taking up to six hours or more.

The discovery of cathelicidin-AM comes even as China’s panda population continues to dwindle, the situation growing worse with each passing day. Despite diligent efforts made to propagate the species, the deforestation of the panda’s bamboo forest habitats and its poor breeding habits have left it on the precipice of extinction. Fortunately, diminishing panda populations will not impact Dr. Yan’s discovery since scientists can artificially synthesize the panda-produced antibiotic through gene decoding, creating a small molecule known as a peptide.

Dr. Yan and his a$sociates look to turn the antibiotic into either a drug for humans or a powerful antiseptic that can be used as a cleaner for surfaces and utensils, but those uses are probably still a while off. The new research may just convince some conservation groups that pandas are indeed worth saving, as recent frustrations over tedious breeding programs and such has led some to see pandas as a species that simply isn’t worth saving. That’s great news, because if there’s one future that we want, it’s one where every man, woman, and child has a clean bill of health, and we’re able to enjoy watching videos of baby pandas on rocking horses for generations to come.

Please explain. I'm so lost. They found Pandas carry a useful antibiotic. What did these "####s" do wrong?

As somebody who is currently just getting over the Flu, I will gladly tell you to go #### yourself. If not for medicine these past several days would have been even more MISERABLE then they already were for me.

Elaborate. How will nuts, fruits, and herbs help with any strain of influenza (lets focus on viruses for now)

Zinc (in nuts) is the only component that may potentially reduce the longevity of the virus by blocking receptors that the influenza virus binds to.

That's all.

Edit: And of course vitamin C can be beneficial.

Easy. By boosting the immune system. Meds(legal drugs) only suppress symptoms. Dries mucus, etc. It never heals or rids your body of anything. Antibiotics are some of the worse drugs you can take. Antibiotics are that which pertains to being against life. Anti means against. Bio means life. The ic suffix means of or pertaining to. If drugs are bad, then why would you take them? God says heal from the earth. Not to take drugs. Just my stance. Yall can keep consuming your legal drugs.

You say vitamin C can be beneficial, yet you're saying fruits, veggies, nuts, herbs aren't. How does that make sense? Cat's claw is one herb that helps boost the immune system.

Its funny. You'll take something that has a million other side effects. Or drugs that create other problems. My son took an antibiotic. That same antibiotic caused yeast. They prescribed him another antibiotic to rid him of the yeast. Its all a game. I didn't give me the antibiotics. I changed his diet and he got better on his own. Yall people better wake up. All they are doing is keeping people sick to keep generating money. Government, the food industry, health industry, etc. They all work together. Its a dirty game ha ha. Yall better learn to start healing thy self.

They don't want us to sell drugs, but doctors are legal drug dealers ha ha. They can't make any money off us selling drugs in the street so its illegal.

Wasn't looking for any approval with that post, I was just genuinely amused by your lack of understanding modern medicine. Getting caught up in the semantics doesn't help you, it only further solidifies that you have no clue what you're talking about.

That, and the fact that you talk about what "God" says to do completely ignoring the fact that he gave us the competence manufacture medicine in the first place -- if he didn't want us to we wouldn't be able to. Then to top it all of you have the nerve to call someone else a "mindless drone." You're one hilarious dude...

You are simply generalizing and placing all meds in one category. We can do the same for nuts, herbs and all the #### you mentioned. However, I said said, Zinc (in some nuts) blocks receptors to reduce the longevity of the illness.

You say "it never heals or rids your body of anything", but neither do your herbs etc.

These herbs, even Green Tea, contain 1000 of compounds which scientists have not even isolated yet. You don't know what you're drinking.

The medications on the other hand are all isolated compounds that we KNOW the mechanisms that proceed once consumed.

Agreed, eating healthier will go a long way in preventing diseases

Dark fruits and leafy greens are extremely high in antioxidants
