Humans differ in their personal microbial cloud

Abstract
Dispersal of microbes between humans and the built environment can occur through direct contact with surfaces or through airborne release; the latter mechanism remains poorly understood. Humans emit upwards of 106 biological particles per hour, and have long been known to transmit path... Read More

A case of prion disease acquired from contaminated beef

Spongiform encephalopathies are neurodegenerative diseases caused by misfolding of normal cellular prion proteins. A 2014 case of variant Creutzfeldt-Jacob prion disease in the United States was probably caused by eating beef from animals with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or mad cow d... Read More

Rapid testing for TB aims to reduce drug resistance, lower mortality rate

Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have documented the accuracy of three new tests for more rapidly diagnosing drug-resistant forms of tuberculosis (TB), which are much harder and more expensive to treat and which, experts say, represent a major threat to globa...

The bacteria-fighting super element that’s making a comeback in hospitals: copper

Ancient Egyptians used copper to sterilize chest wounds and drinking water. Greeks, Romans and Aztecs relied on copper compounds to treat burns, headaches and ear infections. Thousands of years later, the ancient therapeutic is being embraced by some hospitals because of its ability to kill bact... Read More

Wasps do a gain-of-function experiment in caterpillars

Parasitic wasps inject their eggs into lepidopteran hosts, where they carry out their developmental stages. Along with the eggs, the wasps also deliver viruses carrying genes encoding proteins which inhibit caterpillar immune defenses. Some of these genes are permanently transferred to the lepid...
