Dr. Randolph C. Fish at the APWH

Over 350 leading research scientists from 45 countries around the world met in Liverpool, England to discuss advances in the study of microbes inhabiting earth’s environments, including human populations. The global antibiotic resistance crisis is increasing with few answers. Randolph C. Fish, DPM  of PhageBiotics, Inc. in Olympia, WA gave an invited talk on human use of bacteriophage, viruses against bacteria. “While much research work needs to be done, bacteriophages are not affected by resistance and are, therefore, an excellent tool in the fight against infections and resistance.” His latest paper on human use of bacteriophage is found in the July issue of The Journal of Wound Care.

The initial presentation by Dr. Fish on this topic was presented at the 2015 National Meeting of the Academy of Physicians in Wound Healing (APWH).  Dr. Fish will present his follow-up research at the 2016 APWH National Conference in November.

Randolph Fish, DPM has been board certified with the ABPM since 1989.
