In our latest infographic we provide a visual snapshot of the infections and immune processes that have been linked with the microbiome thus far, explaining some of the evidence
In this article, the authors test ocellatin peptides against one of the most concerning priority pathogens, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
In the era of meta-omics, infection control and prevention must consider healthcare-associated infections in the global context of pathobiome.
A recently published study has concluded that yaws eradication will require more than a single round of mass drug treatment – as per the current WHO strategy – as researchers confirm the appearance of antibiotic-resistant strains.
In a recent study published in Nature Communications, researchers validated a novel screening approach to identify host-directed compounds that reduce the replication of intracellular pathogens, Julie Kaiser explains.
The WHO has released its first surveillance data on antibiotic resistance, revealing that it is widespread across both low-income and high-income countries.
This study, recently published in Future Microbiology, aimed to study the effects of encoded heat-shock protein 90 homolog (htpG) on the selected virulence factors responsible for pathogenesis and biofilm formation of P. aeruginosa.
In a new report issued by an international consortium, suggestions are provided to support a more sustainable and accessible approach to antibiotic development in order to fight growing concerns over resistance.
Infectious diseases remain a major cause of mortality across the globe, so if pathogens could therefore be harnessed as a weapon, the implications would certainly be severe and far-reaching. Find out more about biothreats and bioterrorism in our explainer.
