Happy New Year

Dear ASM,

It will be a great pleasure for me and my group if you can post on your Facebook page attached photos of Petri dishes.
A New Years way of examination of antimicrobial activity: Inflict on a Petri dish, a microorganism in the shape of a New Years tree, and then add some antibiotics... Read More

Advancing Phage Therapy

New research conducted at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida and the National Cancer Institute, in Bethesda, Maryland demonstrate that a subset of bacteriophages, dubbed “superspreaders,” potentially play a major role in transmitting antimicrobial resistance. The research, describe... Read More

Penn study identifies potent inhibitor of Zika entry into human cells

A panel of small molecules that inhibit Zika virus infection, including one that stands out as a potent inhibitor of Zika viral entry into relevant human cell types, was discovered by researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Publishing in Cell Reports t... Read More

"Tricky Trichomonas"

"What is the best way to test for Trichomonas vaginalis in a cost effective manner? It's a classic trade-off between money and assay sensitivity." Read More

Viral escape hatch could be treatment target for hepatitis E

The technique that the hepatitis E virus — an emerging liver virus historically found in developing countries but now on the rise in Europe — uses to spread could present a weak spot scientists can exploit to treat the disease, according to a new study.

New dental implant with built-in reservoir reduces risk of infections

A multidisciplinary team of researchers at KU Leuven (University of Leuven, Belgium) has developed a dental implant that gradually releases drugs from a built-in reservoir. This helps prevent and fight infections.

Our mouth contains many micro-organisms, including bacterial and fungal pathoge... Read More

'FishTaco' sorts out who is doing what in your microbiome

A growing body of evidence indicates that the trillions of microbes that live on and inside our bodies affect our health. Collectively, these resident microbes form our microbiome.

In a new paper appearing in the journal Cell Host & Microbe, researchers at the University of Washington report ... Read More

Why hospital antibiotic management strategies do little to curb resistance

A generation ago, two antibiotic strategies known as cycling and mixing were employed to outwit bacteria. Cycling is like antibiotic crop rotation where certain classes of antibiotics are withdrawn for a period of time. Doctors thought this would combat resistance because bacterial pathogens wou...

How ‘stealth warrior’ bacteria turn a tick’s gut microbes against itself

Before infecting humans, tick-borne bacteria or viruses first have to get past a tick’s defenses to colonize it. How this occurs is not well understood. To investigate, Yale researchers studied a model of the second-most-common tick-borne infection in the United States, human granulocytic anapla... Read More

The super Bug from Moldova

It is very sad to watch how these small bodies are each year stronger and resistant to antibiotics. Read More

A Microbial Death Star

Star Wars – an epic story of war between the forces of good and evil in a galaxy far, far away. The Death Star – the ultimate weapon of destruction. The story is science fiction, but it could be considered an analogy for the constant battle between our immune system and microbial pathogens. Beli... Read More

Blood test can predict life or death outcome for patients with Ebola virus disease

Scientists have identified a ‘molecular barcode’ in the blood of patients with Ebola virus disease that can predict whether they are likely to survive or die from the viral infection.

A team at the University of Liverpool, in collaboration with Public Health England, Boston University and oth... Read More

Building an Ebola Virus Lab in Sierra Leone with Ian Goodfellow, PhD

Ian Goodfellow, PhD, Cambridge University, is interviewed by Vincent Racaniello, PhD, Columbia University, New York, about state of lab capacity in Africa during the Ebola outbreak. Goodfellow made the decision to go to Sierra Leone during the late summer of 2014 after following the media covera... Read More

Innovative Chemical Treatments to Kill Foodborne Pathogens - Michael Doyle, PhD
