New defensive mechanism against bacterial wound infections

Added: 11.10.2019 17:58 | 6 views | 0 comments

Wound inflammation which results in impaired wound healing can have serious consequences for patients. Researchers have discovered a new defensive mechanism which enables our skin to actively kill bacteria. Central to this mechanism is a cellular messenger molecule known as 'interleukin 6', whose mode of action may be used in the future to prevent wound infections.

Mode of delivery at birth may play key role in shaping the child's skin microbiome

Added: 11.10.2019 17:58 | 5 views | 0 comments

In a new study, investigators found that bacterial genera in children were more similar to those of their own mothers than to those of unrelated women. Their data suggest that the mode of delivery at birth could be an important factor in shaping the child's microbiome.

Composition of human skin microbiome can be modulated

Scientists have demonstrated the use of living bacteria to modulate skin microbiome composition. Mixtures of different skin microbial components have been used to temporarily modulate the composition of recipient skin bacteria for therapeutic or cosmetic purposes.

New test diagnoses Lyme disease within 15 minutes

Added: 11.10.2019 16:22 | 21 views | 0 comments

Current testing for Lyme disease, called the standard 2-tiered approach or the STT, involves running two complex assays (ELISA and western blot) to detect antibodies against the bacterium, and requires experienced personnel in a lab, and a few hours to carry out and interpret. Biomedical engineers have developed a rapid microfluidic test that can detect Lyme disease with similar performance as the STT in a much shorter time -- 15 minutes.

A reliable clock for your microbiome

Added: 11.10.2019 12:47 | 22 views | 0 comments

The microbiome is a treasure trove of information about human health and disease, but getting it to reveal its secrets is challenging. A new genetic 'repressilator' circuit acts like a clock that tracks how bacterial growth changes over time with single-cell precision. This tool allows scientists to noninvasively study the dynamics of the microbiome, and also unlocks the potential for complex, synthetic-biology-based diagnostics and therapeutics for the human gut.
