How does antimicrobial resistance spread?


How does antibiotic resistance spread?

Antibiotic resistance is the ability of bacteria to combat the action of one or more antibiotics.
Humans and animals do not become resistant to antibiotic treatments, but bacteria carried by humans and animals can.

In animal farming

Animals may ... Read More

Testing Begins On An Experimental Zika Vaccine With Inactivated Virus

Federal scientists have launched another test in human volunteers of a Zika vaccine. This one uses a more traditional approach than an experiment that started in August.

Federal officials are eager to develop a vaccine as quickly as possible, which is why they are pursuing multiple approaches... Read More

Discovery of new bacteria complicates problem with salmon poisoning in dogs

Researchers at Oregon State University have identified for the first time another bacterium that can cause symptoms similar to "salmon poisoning" in dogs - and may complicate the efforts of Pacific Northwest pet owners to keep their dogs protected and healthy.

The Pacific Northwest, from nort... Read More

Using a 'living antibiotic' to tackle disease

It is the first time the predatory bacterium Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus has been successfully used as an injected anti-bacterial therapy and represents an important step in the fight against drug-resistant infections, or ‘superbugs’.

Shigella infection is responsible for over 160 million illn... Read More

Climate change affects Swedish reindeer herding and increases tularemia

In northern Sweden, data from certain weather stations have shown that the snow season has been shortened by over two months in the last 30 years, which has huge effects on reindeer herding. Also, the climate sensitive human infection tularemia has tenfolded over the same period and is much more... Read More

Injury triggers stem cell growth in the parasite that causes schistosomiasis

Parasitic flatworms known as schistosomes require a gene called cpb1 in order to survive in mice, according to a new study published in PLOS Pathogens. The study also shows that schistosome stem cells grow in response to injury.

Schistosomes afflict more than 200 million people worldwide and ... Read More

Finger bacteria

Colorful cluster of colonies seen on a print from a finger grown on TSA at 37 degrees C for 48 hrs. Read More

Unknown Bacillus/Hand print

Unknown organism, possible Bacillus spp, seen on a hand print after hand washing. TSA plate was grown at 37 C for 24 hours then left at refrigerated temps for 4 weeks. Organism was a light brown and mat. The center of the growth was smooth with rhizoid like growth on the edges which were mucoid ... Read More

Zika in the Guys

In this episode of Virus Watch, we explore the finding that Zika virus infects the testis of mice, causing damage to the organ, reduced sperm production, and less fertility. The important question: does the same happen in humans? Read More

My First Microscope - ASM Opens Microbial World to Young Latin Americans

In late July, 2016 ASM ventured below the equator, joining public and private sector partners at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation’s (APEC) Women in Science (WiSci) STEAM Camp in Chaclacayo, Peru. ASM Young Ambassador to Uruguay, Dr. Paola Scavone, and ASM Program Coordinator Laetitia Diatez... Read More

Exams, Science Art, and Learning!

In this blog post, I describe how I encourage microbiology students to draw cartoons about basic concepts in the course. I find that this approach promotes ownership, better comprehension, and gives me better insight into what the students are "seeing" in my class. Read More

Bacillus mycodies

Bacillus mycodies seen from an environmental swab grown on TSA at 37 degrees C for 49 hrs. Characteristic swirling rhizoid growth can be see. Read More

Designer bacteria build carbon-silicon materials for the first time

Scientists have genetically engineered bacteria to make a protein that squishes silicon and carbon together long enough for them to stick to one another — forming a bond that, until now, only chemists had managed to create. If scientists can teach these bacteria to produce the carbon-silicon mol... Read More

Why attend ABRCMS? Students discuss their experiences

Students are the focus of the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) meeting, held most recently November 9-12, 2016, in Tampa, Florida. Undergraduate and postbaccalaureate students make up over half the roughly 4,000 program participants, and many participants belo... Read More

Typical "Poached egg" colony of Corynebacterium diphtheriae(biotype-mitis ) in tellurite blood agar.

Diphtheria an infection caused by Corynebacterium diphtheriae can be fatal at times, especially if it involves the respiratory tract. They multiply locally on mucous membrane, produce toxin causing necrosis of epithelial cells and ultimately form pseudomembranous coat. These pseudomembrane may ... Read More

Proteus mirabilis on Blood Agar

A sample of Proteus mirabilis was inoculated on to a blood agar plate by taking a sterile swab and placing a drop in the center of the plate. The plate was then incubated at 37 degrees for 8 hrs. Swarming motility can be seen as a halo around the growth in the center of the plate. Read More

Major finding identifies nitrogen as key driver for gut health

Researchers from the University of Sydney have found that the availability of intestinal nitrogen to microbes in the gut plays a key role in regulating interactions between gut microbes and their host animal. The study is published today in Cell Metabolism and is led by researchers at the Univer... Read More
