How to Measure Bacteriophages in Clinical Studies for Antimicrobial Agents

Bacterio refers to “bacteria” and phage to “eat”, thus bacteriophages are viruses that grow on bacteria by attaching to the bacterial cell wall to penetrate and inject their genetic material, which degrades the bacteria’s genetic material. The viral DNA/RNA replicates within the bacteria, until the bacteria wall lyses and more phages are released.
