UV light can aid hospitals' fight to wipe out drug-resistant superbugs

A new tool -- a type of ultraviolet light called UVC -- could aid hospitals in the ongoing battle to keep drug-resistant bacteria from lingering in patient rooms and causing new infections.

Some hospitals have already begun using UVC machines in addition to standard chemical disinfection to k... Read More

Researchers Use Innovating Methods to Study Vertical Transmission of Microbes

It has been assumed that mothers pass on gut microbes to their infants during and just after delivery, a process called vertical transmission, but because of technical restraints, the evidence of this occurring has been limited. Previous cultivation-free studies have observed the same microbial ... Read More
