Bacteriophage therapy is a viable proposition for controlling luminous vibriosis caused by Vibrio harveyi in shrimp aquaculture. However, environmental factors influence the growth and activity of phage and affect its efficiency in controlling bacterial diseases. An essential problem in the use of vibrio phage as a therapeutic agent was the development of resistance to phage attachment, rendering them resistant to the lytic action of phage. This problem could be overcome by applying a cocktail… 

Phages as a Cohesive Prophylactic and Therapeutic Approach in Aquaculture Systems

The main objective of this work is to summarize, from a scientific and industry perspective, the recent data regarding phage application in the form of targeted probiotics and therapeutic agents in aquaculture niches.

Application of novel lytic bacteriophages to control Vibrio parahaemolyticus load in seafood

Results showed promising results regarding the application of lytic bacteriophages to conrol V. parahaemolyticus in laboratory-scale, which can be further scaled up for large-scale application in the food industry.

Vibrio harveyi: a serious pathogen of fish and invertebrates in mariculture

It is recognized that V. harveyi may enter the so-called viable but nonculturable (VBNC) state, and resuscitation of the VBNC cells may be an important reason for vibriosis outbreaks in aquaculture.

Deploying Viruses against Phytobacteria: Potential Use of Phage Cocktails as a Multifaceted Approach to Combat Resistant Bacterial Plant Pathogens

This review highlights the concrete and fundamental determinants in the development and application of phage cocktails and their underlying mechanism, combating resistant plant-bacterial pathogens, and provides recent advances in the use ofphage cocktail therapy against phytobacteria for the biocontrol of devastating plant diseases.

Bacteriophage Therapy in Aquaculture: An Overview

Effects of abiotic factors on the stability and infectivity of polyvalent coliphage

This work shows that polyvalent phage PE1 has a strong adaptive capacity to various abiotic factors and should be a good candidate of being an antibacterial agent, especially for antibiotic-resistant bacteria control in sewage.



Effect of Total Dissolved Solids and Temperature on Bacteriophage Therapy against Luminous vibriosis in Shrimp

Of seven Vibrio harveyi phages, phage V was the best for biocontrol of luminous vibriosis due to its broad host range (64%, n = 83), and the optimum phage activity was obtained with a TDS value of 11.25 mg/ml and temperature of 30oC.

Influence of environmental variables in the efficiency of phage therapy in aquaculture

Evaluated the effect of physical and chemical properties of aquaculture waters on the efficiency of phage therapy under controlled experimental conditions to provide a basis for the selection of the most suitable protocol for subsequent experiments.

Phage Therapy as an Approach to Prevent Vibrio anguillarum Infections in Fish Larvae Production

Direct supplying phages to the culture water could be an effective and inexpensive approach toward reducing the negative impact of vibriosis in larviculture.

Isolation and partial characterization of a bacteriophage infecting the shrimp pathogen Vibrio harveyi.

A bacteriophage infecting Vibrio harveyi was isolated from shrimp pond water and found to be double stranded DNA with an approximate size of 46 kb and the stability of phage PW2 was dependent on temperature and pH.

Experimental bacteriophage-mediated virulence in strains of Vibrio harveyi.

This study demonstrated that the presence of the bacteriophage V. harveyi myovirus like (VHML) may confer virulence to V.Harveyi Strain 642, and concluded that Bacteriophages VHML either fully or partly confers virulence in V. Harveyi Strains 12, 20, 45 and 645.
