Phages have a natural ability to infect and lyse bacteria that is independent of antibiotics resistances. They also have highly desirable pharmaceutical properties: they are self-replicating and self-limiting, they have proven effectiveness against biofilms and have no known serious side effects. Phage-lysins have similarly attractive properties: they act specifically on individual species of bacteria, leaving the beneficial part of the microbiome intact, they have proven effectiveness against biofilms, have no known side effects, and resistances have hardly been observed. For many bacterial infections, natural, lytic phages and/or endolysins are promising alternatives to antibiotics, but to this date no phage-based pharmaceuticals are on the market in either the US or the EU.
