Medicine & TechnologyResearch findings suggests that an RNA sequnce found in a majority of infection causing bacteria could be targeted to combat antibiotic-resistance that's a rising public health issue across the globe.
Perhaps one of the most alarming findings in the recently-concluded European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) is that raw dog food contains significant amounts of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, making them a public health risk to Europe and the rest of the world.
A new nanothin coating material could be added to wound dressings and biomedical implants to prevent and even treat dangerous bacteria and fungi infections - even from the notoriously resistant superbugs.
Research has revealed that the unique environment of space allows bacteria to grow in more harmful ways than how they thrive on Earth. On the contrary, the development of drug treatments in space also has its benefits thanks to microgravity.
Decades have passed and no new antibiotics have been discovered to counteract the dangerous effects of bacteria which became immune to the treatment in preventing different kinds of infectious diseases.
The threat to human health by these antibiotic resistant suprebug is real. Scientists discovered how these strains are efficient in driving off antibiotics. Better Microlide antibiotics are now being developed based on study as to how the superbugs got their immunity against antibiotics.
