Antimicrobials are substance that kills microorganisms such as bacteria or mold, or stops them from growing and causing disease.
A senior biology student at The University of Texas at Arlington recently earned an award for her research about antimicrobial drug resistance.
An interview with Dr Beverley Isherwood.
Innovate UK, LifeArc, and Medicines Discovery Catapult (MDC) have joined forces to create PACE (Pathways to Antimicrobial Clinical Efficacy), a £30 million initiative supporting early-stage innovation against antimicrobial resistance (AMR) to save lives. PACE has today (19 October 2023) announced its first funding call with up to £10 million available to support innovators developing new antimicrobials.
Researchers trained machine learning (ML) models to analyze RNA molecular signatures in patients’ blood.
Bacteria draw from an arsenal of weapons to combat the drugs intended to kill them. Among the most prevalent of these weapons are ribosome-modifying enzymes.
A report by University of Queensland researchers has warned a global crisis of antibiotic resistance is inevitable, despite promising developments in new antibiotics.
The battle to stop the increase of superbugs in hospitals has been an ongoing struggle for healthcare professionals.
During the conference, we had the chance to catch up with some of the speakers to ask them about their work, as well as what they would be discussing at the 2023 BioInfet Conference.
Researchers evaluate the efficacy and safety of an oral antimicrobial drug acoziborole in patients with human African trypanosomiasis.
University of Queensland researchers say metal compounds could be the answer to the growing problem of drug-resistant fungal infections.
Creating a mutation that inhibits how the bacterial pathogen Neisseria gonorrhoeae causes gonorrhea, a common sexually transmitted infection, could offer a new way to prevent and treat the disease, according to researchers in the Institute for Biomedical Sciences at Georgia State University.
An international collaboration led by researchers from the University of Bern and the University of Queensland in Australia has demonstrated that chemical compounds containing special metals are highly effective in fighting dangerous fungal infections.
A recent study reports the development of a synthetic antibacterial peptide PLG0206.
Research from the Francis Crick Institute has revealed a key mechanism which increases tolerance to drugs amongst microbial communities.
Researchers investigated the rising antimicrobial resistance in the Eastern Mediterranean Region of the World Health Organization from 2017 to 2019.
In this interview, we speak to Professor Karsten Borgwardt and Professor Adrian Egli about their latest research that used AI to predict antibiotic resistance.
Phico Therapeutics Ltd today announced that it has established a Science Advisory Board (SAB) to provide strategic scientific guidance to the Company.
Disarming superbugs that can cause deadly infections is the focus of a powerful database now housed at The University of Queensland.
A new study aimed to examine the antiviral potential of atovaquone against the original SARS-CoV-2 strain and other variants of concern.
Scientists isolated a molecule, extracted from the leaves of the European chestnut tree, with the power to neutralize dangerous, drug-resistant staph bacteria. Frontiers in Pharmacology published the finding, led by scientists at Emory University.
