Temperature Dependent Bacteria as a Remedy

A new study conducted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology shows that temperature dependent bacteria may be used in the future. This treatment will be administered to patients by placing bacteria in them. The bacteria will contain medicine that will be pumped into the body based on the temperature of the bacteria. The bacteria will be changed in temperature by use of ultrasound technology. Furthermore, if the individual has a fever this will cause the bacteria to self-destruct and be expelled from the body through defecation. This treatment may be useful in cancer patients because bacteria tend to gravitate toward tumors. This is due to tumors containing less oxygen.


This is very interesting and informative. I hope to see more information on this topic in the future. This will be very useful in medicinal technology. Doctors should look more into this technology to treat their patients.

  1. This is so interesting! Bacteria are so resilient and can adapt so quickly, hopefully they can be used to treat and cure diseases.
