Researchers have discovered that some oligosaccharides from human breast milk may possess antimicrobial and anti-biofilm properties against Group B Streptococcus (GBS).
For the first time, physicists have created a 3D movie that demonstrates a virus preparing to infect a healthy cell via genomic rearrangement – leading to the potential to better treat an array of human diseases caused by viruses.
Public Health England has released updated guidance on Candida auris, as they confirm that over 200 patients have been infected or colonized with the fungus.
Researchers have demonstrated that individual E. coli cells can sense the mechanical environment via voltage-induced calcium fluxes, a mechanism similar to that seen in vertebrate’s sensory neurons.
Researchers have developed a microfluidic device that can assess the deformability of red blood cells and consequently haemolytic anemia. In future it could be used to monitor the disease progression of malaria.
Researchers from Washington University of St. Louis have developed a proof-of-concept test that can rapidly detect the presence of Zika virus in blood, without the need for refrigeration.
A study has suggested that the current strategies aimed at changing perceptions towards measles, mumps and rubella vaccinations only serve to reinforce these false beliefs.
DNA sequencing of MRSA could help identify patients who are most at risk of death from the infection – providing a new treatment strategy towards personalized medicine.
