Phages transducing antibiotic resistance detected in chicken meat

Bacteria resistant to antibiotics are on the rise. There are different explanations for how resistances are transferred. Researchers from the Vetmeduni Vienna found phages in chicken meat that are able to transfer antimicrobial resistance to bacteria. Phages are viruses that exclusively infect b... Read More

Molecular homing beacon redirects human antibodies to fight pathogenic bacteria

With the threat of multidrug-resistant bacterial pathogens growing, new ideas to treat infections are sorely needed. Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences report preliminary success testing an entirely nove... Read More

Fungal contaminant on Casein media

Unknown fungal contaminant seen on Casein media after 1 month at refrigerated temperatures. Green spore formation is seen throughout the colony with white hyphal growth on the outer edge of the colony. The center was raised and had deep groves. Read More

Microbes After Hours – Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

In 2011, the NIH Clinical Center had a cluster of infections of a pathogen that tops the CDC's list of urgent threats: antibiotic-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae. This bacteria, which can cause bloodstream and other infections, has recently developed resistance to the class of antibiotics kno... Read More

THESE MICROBES ‘EAT’ ELECTRONS TO MAKE METHANE

In a new study, researchers demonstrate for the first time how methanogens obtain electrons from solid surfaces. The discovery could help scientists design electrodes for microbial “factories” that produce methane gas and other compounds sustainably. Read More

Phage spread antibiotic resistance

Investigators found that nearly half of the 50 chicken meat samples purchased from supermarkets, street markets, and butchers in Austria contained viruses that are capable of transferring antibiotic resistance genes from one bacterium to another—or from one species to another. “Our work suggest...

Antibody's unusual abilities might inspire vaccine strategies

The recent discovery of a novel antibody that works in an unusual way might inspire ideas for designing more effective vaccines. Among the common pathogens that could be targeted are urinary-tract infecting strains of E. coli. Read More

Infant antibiotic use linked to adult diseases

A new study led by researchers at the University of Minnesota has found a three-way link among antibiotic use in infants, changes in the gut bacteria, and disease later in life. The imbalances in gut microbes, called dysbiosis, have been tied to infectious diseases, allergies and other autoimmun... Read More

Ebola experience is a wake-up call for the WHO

"The WHO, largely unchanged since its creation, is ill-equipped to deal with the disease threats that this new world creates...the recent Ebola outbreak is a case in point. Even the WHO's director-general, Margaret Chan, said her organisation was "overwhelmed" and admitted that a crisis on that ... Read More

A Flu Epidemic That Threatens Birds, Not Humans

Although much of the country has barely noticed, avian influenza — a version of the virus that generated “Killer Bird Flu!” headlines a decade ago — is now sweeping the Midwest. Read More

Malaria parasite's essential doorway into red blood cells illuminated

Researchers at Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health and the Broad Institute have identified a protein on the surface of human red blood cells that serves as an essential entry point for invasion by the malaria parasite. The presence of this protein, called CD55, was found to be critical to... Read More
