Prolonged transmission of a resistant bacterial strain in a Northern California hospital

Added: 23.06.2019 19:30 | 22 views | 0 comments

Researchers have used whole genome sequencing (WGS) to demonstrate transmission of a single bacterial strain that possessed a carbapenem-resistance gene in a northern California hospital. The gene armed the bacteria with resistance to carbapenems, a type of antimicrobial drug reserved as a last-line treatment for serious infections.

The solution to antibiotic resistance could be in your kitchen sponge

Added: 23.06.2019 19:30 | 22 views | 0 comments

Researchers have discovered bacteriophages, viruses that infect bacteria, living in their kitchen sponges. As the threat of antibiotic resistance increases, bacteriophages, or phages for short, may prove useful in fighting bacteria that cannot be killed by antibiotics alone.

Cannabidiol is a powerful new antibiotic

Added: 23.06.2019 19:30 | 19 views | 0 comments

New research has found that Cannnabidiol is active against Gram-positive bacteria, including those responsible for many serious infections (such as Staphyloccocus aureus and Streptococcus pneumoniae), with potency similar to that of established antibiotics such as vancomycin or daptomycin.

People who have inadequate vitamin A in their diets are more susceptible to skin infection, yet how that vitamin affects skin immunity has been unclear. New research sheds some light on that mystery by identifying a previously unknown bacteria-killing protein on the epidermis that requires the vitamin to work.

Electrifying wound care: Better bandages to destroy bacteria

Added: 23.06.2019 18:19 | 2 views | 0 comments

Bandages infused with electricity can help heal wounds faster than typical bandages or antibiotics -- but for years, researchers have not really understood why. A recent study is offering new clues about the science behind those bandages, and researchers say the findings could help lead to better wound treatment.
