Researchers build micro-device to detect bacteria, viruses

New process improves lab-on-chip devices to isolate drug-resistant strains of bacterial infection, viruses

22-Apr-2020

Engineering researchers developed a next-generation miniature lab device that uses magnetic nano-beads to isolate minute bacterial particles that cause diseases. Using this new technology improves how clinicians isolate drug-resistant strains of bacterial infections and difficult-to-detect ...

Battling bacteria with viruses

New agents to fight multidrug-resistant germs

07-Jan-2020

Resistance to antibiotics is on the rise worldwide. Fraunhofer scientists have joined forces with partners in the Phage4Cure project to explore alternatives to antibiotics. One objective is to vanquish multidrug-resistant pathogens with viruses called bacteriophages. Another is to see these ...

Body cells spy out bacteria

The aryl-hydrocarbon receptor detects when bacteria increase so much in number that they become a danger to the body

23-Dec-2019

Bacterial infection does not automatically lead to illness; many germs only become dangerous when they occur in large numbers. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology in Berlin have discovered that the body has a receptor, which doesn’t recognize bacteria themselves, but ...

The tightest non-aminoglycoside ligand for the bacterial ribosomal RNA A-site

17-Oct-2018

A research group at Tohoku University has made a significant discovery with positive implications for the development of bacteria-fighting drugs. The aminoacyl-tRNA site (A-site) of the 16S RNA decoding region in the bacterial ribosome looks promising for a new era of antibiotic drug ...

How fatal biofilms form

09-Oct-2018

By severely curtailing the effects of antibiotics, the formation of organized communities of bacterial cells known as biofilms can be deadly during surgeries and in urinary tract infections. Yale researchers have just come a lot closer to understanding how these biofilms develop, and potentially ...

Cellular memory outwits pathogens

Study proves effectiveness of sequential antibiotic treatment against the pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa

14-Sep-2018

The World Health Organization (WHO) warns that seemingly harmless bacterial infections could develop into one of the leading causes of death in the next few years, particularly in the industrialised countries. This dramatic threat arose because, in many cases, the antibiotics that have been ...

Time-switch for immune cells

11-Sep-2018

Supported by funding from the Austrian Science Fund FWF, a team from the Max F. Perutz Laboratories deciphered the mechanism of the TTP protein as a time-switch for the programmed cell death of white blood cells. A targeted death of these cells prevents an excessive immune reaction, but could ...
