IIT-M and NASA Study Pathogens on ISS

The study by IIT-M and NASA on the ISS focused on Enterobacter bugandensis, a drug-resistant pathogen. This bacterium, part of the ESKAPE group, is highly resistant to antibiotics. Researchers found 13 genetically distinct strains on the ISS, which are more resistant to antimicrobials. These findings are crucial for managing infections in hospitals and protecting astronauts’ health. The ISS, a collaborative project of five space agencies, travels at 28,000 km/h and has been continuously occupied since 2000.
