Sepsis, a condition associated with significant morbidity and mortality, has been increasingly associated with the gut microbiome. In this interview…
Researchers from the University Medical Center Groningen and the Maastricht University Medical Center have discovered how commonly used drugs affect the composition and metabolic activity of the gut microbiome, which in turn may increase the risk of certain disorders.
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered clear signs of enterovirus in acute flaccid myelitis patients, strongly suggesting that the disease is viral.
Researchers have developed nanomeshes as an effective drug-delivery system for antibiotics.
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Microbiology review, entitled ‘Anti-Candida activity of existing antibiotics and their derivatives when used alone or in combination with antifungals’ as we ask the authors about Candida infections, the potential repurposing of antibiotics and the future of this field.
Scientists believe they have uncovered how Plasmodium falciparum jumped hosts 50,000 years ago; from gorillas to humans. The study demonstrates a novel understanding of how pathogens can jump between species.
A team from the Broad Institute at MIT and Harvard have designed a Cas13–CRISPR construct, termed CARVER, that can detect and kill viruses inside human cells. The flexible CARVER system could be used as a new tool in research and the clinic.
Rotavirus infection can result in severe-life threatening illness in some individuals, however, new research from a team at Georgia State University (GA, USA), has identified bacteria that could be used to prevent or cure this infection.
