Antibiotics are drugs used to treat infections caused by bacteria and other microorganisms.
The National Science Foundation has announced the award of $12.5 million to Arizona State University for the development of a new Biological Integration Institute.
A new Cornell study has found the antimicrobial properties of certain stem cell proteins could offer a potential treatment to reduce infection in skin wounds.
Researchers from Rice University are confident that they can prime peptides to solve the complex issue of antibiotic resistance among humans.
Mycobacterium abscessus, a relative of the bacteria that cause tuberculosis and leprosy, is responsible for particularly severe damage to human lungs and can be resistant to many standard antibiotics, making infections extremely challenging to treat.
Similar to how a spider traps its prey, the cells of the human immune system cooperate to trap and “eat” bacteria.
Increasing evidence points to the fact that gut microbiota performs a vital role in regulating the advancement of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Scientists have created a useful framework to assess the risks of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs).
Scientists sequenced the genome of a virulent Salmonella Enteritidis strain and discovered that it was both antibiotic-resistant and could affect people.
A new study notes that sequential treatment with antibiotics that are similar but often swapped around can effectively kill bacteria and avoid drug resistance.
A group of scientists have identified a connection between the type of microbiome that recolonizes the gut after antibiotics and the lessened lifespan in mice.
Historical museum collections were used by scientists to analyze the impacts of human-made antibiotics over the complete history of their application.
An international team of researchers used historical museum collections to study the effects of human-made antibiotics over the entire history of their application.
Only 21 percent of patients with severe pneumonia caused by SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) have a documented bacterial superinfection at the time of intubation, resulting in potential overuse of antibiotics, according to new research published online in the American Thoracic Society's American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
A study of microbial populations under a prolonged period of starvation by Indiana University professor Jay T. Lennon and his laboratory could help researchers answer questions pertaining to chronic infections, the functioning of bacteria in the environment and the persistence of life itself.
One major threat that the world faces and researchers are working to combat today is antibiotic resistance, and six CSRI students are doing their part in the fight.
Decreasing bacterial acidity could help reduce antimicrobial resistance by eliminating bacteria that can survive being treated with antibiotics.
Contamination of urban lakes, rivers and surface water by human waste is creating pools of 'superbugs' in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC) - but improving access to clean water, sanitation and sewerage infrastructure could help to protect people's health, a new study reveals.
Eran Blacher bagged the NOSTER & Science Microbiome Prize 2021 for his work in highlighting the relationship between the microbiome and neurodegenerative diseases.
The risk of antibiotic resistance increases as bacteria continue to evade even the most powerful contemporary medicinal treatments. Antibiotic-resistant microorganisms threaten to take more than 10 million lives by 2050, as present-day treatments prove ineffective.
According to a research work published in the Genome Medicine journal, travelers abroad may contract bacteria and other vectors with genes that confer antibiotic resistance, which linger in the travelers’ gut when they return home.
