'Poisoned arrowhead' used by warring bacteria could lead to new antibiotics


A weapon bacteria use to vanquish their competitors could be copied to create new forms of antibiotics, according to Imperial College London research. Researchers have uncovered a novel weapon in the arsenal of bacteria that works in a similar way to common antibiotics. By discovering the ...


Chemicals for pharmaceuticals could be made cheaper and greener by new catalysts


High value chemicals used to make pharmaceuticals could be made much cheaper and quicker thanks to a series of new catalysts made by scientists at the University of Warwick in collaboration with GoldenKeys High-Tech Co., Ltd. in China. The process of making high-value chemicals for uses such as ...


Fruit flies live longer with combination drug treatment

Combination drug treatment may one day be helpful at preventing age-related diseases in people


A triple drug combination has been used to extend the lifespan of fruit flies by 48% in a new study led by UCL and the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing. The three drugs are all already in use as medical treatments: lithium as a mood stabiliser, trametinib as a cancer treatment and ...

Researchers build artificial cells that sense and respond to their environment


Imperial College London scientists have created artificial cells that mimic biological cells by responding to a chemical change in their surroundings. The artificial cells could be used to sense changes in the body and respond by releasing drug molecules, or to sense and remove harmful metals in ...


Predatory journals could damage the legitimacy of scientific publishing

Warning from 3 leading medical writing organizations


'Predatory journals' pose a danger that could undermine the quality, integrity, and reliability of published scientific research, a new joint statement from three leading organizations, professional in medical writing and publication planning, has warned. The American Medical Writers Association ...
