Antimicrobials are substance that kills microorganisms such as bacteria or mold, or stops them from growing and causing disease.
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.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogenic bacterium present in many ecological niches, such as plant roots, stagnant water or even the pipes of our homes. Naturally very versatile, it can cause acute and chronic infections that are potentially fatal for people with weakened immune systems.
Carried like stowaways in the guts of international travelers, new and potentially deadly strains of antimicrobial resistant superbugs may be coming to a community near you, suggests new research from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
No one knows exactly when humans and pathogenic bacteria were encountered with each other. But since then, the war began over life and survival between them. During this time, both sides of the war tried to equip themselves with all their might.
In its latest clinical practice guideline on community-acquired pneumonia the American Thoracic Society's guidelines panel addresses the use of nucleic acid-based testing for non-influenza viral pathogens.
Scientists at the University of Liverpool and University of Utrecht have taken another step forward on their quest to develop a viable drug based on teixobactin - a new class of potent natural antibiotic capable of killing superbugs.
High levels of antibiotic residues, other medicines and chemicals present in Bangladesh's ponds, canals, lakes, rivers and other surface waters are contributing to a spike in antibiotic resistance in the country, says a new study.
Compounds containing metals could hold the key to the next generation of antibiotics to combat the growing threat of global antibiotic resistance.
A new study, published in 'Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy' conducted by a University of Liverpool led research consortium, has helped develop a new treatment option for some multi-drug resistant infections.
New research presented at this week's 29th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases in Amsterdam, Netherlands, identifies a novel association between antibiotic resistance and climate change.
Multi-actor partnership tests natural products and compound libraries for antibacterial activity Discovery efforts will focus on World Health Organization's priority pathogens The Global Antibiotic Research and Development Partnership is partnering with Calibr, the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research, in particular its location Helmholtz-Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland, and the University of Queensland's Community for Open Antimicrobial Drug Discovery in its efforts to develop and ensure new antibiotics are globally available to all patients who need them.
The Global Antibiotic Research and Development Partnership and Evotec AG are today announcing the formation of a new strategic public-private partnership to tackle the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance.
A new study using antimicrobial susceptibility testing and whole genome sequencing to test extended spectrum beta lactamase producing E. coli isolated from cattle for food production and from various retail meat products has shown that all were resistant to at least three antimicrobial classes.
Neem Biotech recently attended the Royal College of Physicians’ Innovation in Medicine Conference 2018 where Neem presented their data around wound-relevant biofilms.
