Antibiotic resistance become a serious problem in the treatment of bacterial infection. The emerge of antibiotic resistance will cause advanced spread of infection in the affected patient leading to septic shock that increase cost of therapy, or even death if uncontrollable. Bacteriophage or so called phage, a virus that attack bacteria specifically, is now being developed to be a therapeutic agent. The study on this microbe is progressing to anticipate the approaching postantibiotic era. As a natural enemy of bacteria, bacteriophage may be potential to be used in therapy for special cases of infection due to bacterial resistance.
