Newly Discovered Reactions From An Old Drug May Lead To New Antibiotics

A mineral found at health food stores could be the key to developing a new line of antibiotics for bacteria that commonly cause diarrhea, tooth decay and, in some severe cases, death.

The trace mineral selenium is found in a number of proteins in both bacterial cells and human cells called se... Read More

Indirect Transmission Can Trigger Influenza Outbreaks In Birds

New data on the persistence of avian influenza viruses in the environment has allowed a team of University of Georgia researchers to create the first model that takes into account both direct and indirect transmission of the viruses among birds. The model, which is detailed in the early online e... Read More

Germs: Protect Yourself Against Bacteria, Viruses and Infection

Germs live everywhere. You can find germs in the air, on food, plants and animals, in the soil, in the water, and on just about every other surface — including your own body.

Most germs won't harm you. Your immune system protects you against a multitude of infectious agents. However, some ger... Read More
