Tetracycline is an antibiotic drug used to treat infection.
A research team led by Professor Kelvin Yeung Wai-kwok from the Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, School of Clinical Medicine, LKS Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong (HKUMed) has designed a non-invasive technology to revitalize the bactericidal effects of conventional antibiotics in multidrug-resistant (MDR)Escherichia coli (E. coli)-associated deep tissue infections, such as urinary tract and peritoneal infections.
Given that there is no vaccine available against gonorrhea, diagnosing this sexually transmitted infection early, treating it effectively and notifying sexual partners are cornerstones of controlling disease spread.
Healthy adults who eat a diverse diet with at least 8-10 grams of soluble fiber a day have fewer antibiotic-resistant microbes in their guts, according to a study published by Agricultural Research Service scientists and their colleagues in mBio.
Bryan Ruiz moved his family into a newly built home in this Central Valley farming center seven months ago and almost immediately found they were under assault.
Researchers extensively searched publicly available SARS-CoV-2 biomedical literature to identify drug combinations that could effectively treat COVID-19.
For years, public-health experts have been sounding the alarm about the next phase in humanity's co-existence with bacteria-;a dark future where emerging strains have rendered once-powerful antibiotics useless.
Researchers created a system that allows scientists to ‘log’ a cell’s reactions to external stimuli within the cell’s genetic material.
Researchers found that virus-like particles produced by co-expression of SARS-CoV-2 S, membrane, envelope, and nucleocapsid proteins contain S glycoproteins, which are modified by complex carbohydrates.
Populations of Drosophila suzukii fruit flies - so-called "spotted-wing Drosophila" that devastate soft-skinned fruit in North America, Europe and parts of South America - could be greatly suppressed with the introduction of genetically modified D. suzukii flies that produce only males after mating, according to new research from North Carolina State University.
A recent review paper by Portuguese and Spanish authors, recently published in the journal Biologics, revealed the current state of knowledge regarding hedgehog health – most notably the presence of infectious agents, diseases and other threats that can affect the health of the population.
Three decades-old antibiotics administered together can block a type of pain triggered by nerve damage in an animal model, UT Southwestern researchers report.
In 2015, hundreds of children were born with brain deformities resulting from a global outbreak of Zika virus infections.
The fight against bacterial infections, especially those caused by resistant pathogens, is in full swing with the search for new antibiotic agents.
Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland have developed a high-quality recombinant virus protein that could be applied in the development of vaccines against the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) and in the detection of novel viruses or antibodies.
The current COVID-19 pandemic caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), seems to attack the human airway epithelium primarily. In severely affected patients, the illness progresses to hypoxemic respiratory failure and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The latter is treatable mainly by supportive management.
Bird poop may pose more health risks than people realize, according to Rice University environmental engineers who study antibiotic resistance.
Farmers in parts of Asia are spraying antibiotics deemed "critical" for human medicine on rice crops, raising fears they may be fuelling antibiotic resistance, say researchers.
The latest generation of tetracyclines - a class of powerful, first-line antibiotics - was designed to thwart the two most common ways bacteria resist such drugs.
Antibiotics save lives -- but using them also helps antibiotic-resistant strains evolve and spread. Each year, antibiotic-resistant bacteria infect some 2.8 million people in the United States, killing more than 35,000, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
A paper published in the Journal of Biomedical Optics (JBO), "Imaging hydroxyapatite in sub-retinal pigment epithelial deposits by fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy with tetracycline staining," demonstrates a potential new diagnostic option for catching a degenerative eye disease in its earliest stages.
