The SARS virus, also due to the slowness and poor efficiency with which it was countered, saw some 740 victims worldwide. This sad page in our history teaches us how important it is, in such cases, to be able to mount a prompt response in order to stem the spread of potentially lethal viruses and prevent the risk of pandemics.
Medical research, conducted through the traditional empirical method, has allowed the creation of numerous types of antibiotics. Despite this, also due to abuse of antibiotics, in recent years several studies have shown the proliferation of bacterial species that are increasingly becoming resistant to drugs and therefore more difficult to fight.
Viruses and bacteria have always lived with us, but if we learned quickly to defend ourselves from the largest and most fearsome predators, it took us much longer to get to know the existence of these microscopic organisms and to understand how to protect ourselves from their insidious attacks.
