Biotherapy   -->   Microbial Therapy

Some microorganisms, such as bacterial phages, are parasites of bacteria and other microbes. Administering some of these parasitic microorganisms to people with infections has been associated with erradication of the underlying infections. Treating infectious diseases with parasitic microorganisms has many advantages over treatment with antibiotics.

This form of biotherapy is sometimes called Microbial Therapy or Phage Therapy.

The practice of phage therapy is nearly 100 years old; but recently it has been getting much more attention, and more scientific study.
