Tetracycline is an antibiotic drug used to treat infection.
Colonoscopy is an important and widely used screening tool for colorectal cancer, but for many patients the bowel-preparation process is more uncomfortable than the procedure itself. To offer an alternative choice in bowel preparation, Ferring Pharmaceuticals Inc. will introduce a new cranberry flavor option of PREPOPIK in January 2015.
The multitude of microbes scientists have found populating the human body have good, bad and mostly mysterious implications for our health. But when something goes wrong, we defend ourselves with the undiscriminating brute force of traditional antibiotics, which wipe out everything at once, regardless of the consequences.
A fortuitous collaboration at Rice University has led to the total synthesis of a recently discovered natural antibiotic.
Though the economic recovery has remained sluggish for most Americans, one field where there has been remarkable growth is cosmetic surgery.
In Mexico the sale of antibiotics for human consumption is controlled to prevent misuse, although in the veterinary sector failure in the implementation of the Official Mexican Standard NOM-064-ZOO-2000, "Guidelines for veterinarian products prescription", has prompted common bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Salmonella spp to become resistant to regular drugs such as streptomycin, trimethoprim, ampicillin, gentamicin, and tetracycline as a result of excess drug use.
Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is a genetic disorder that causes obsessive-compulsive and repetitive behaviors, and other behaviors on the autistic spectrum, as well as cognitive deficits. It is the most common inherited cause of mental impairment and the most common cause of autism.
Researchers from UC Davis School of Medicine and Shriners Hospitals for Children - Northern California have identified a group of cells in the brain that they say plays an important role in the abnormal neuron development in Down syndrome.
Researchers from the Cochrane Infectious Diseases Group, co-ordinated through the editorial base in LSTM, conducted an independent review of the effects of treating cholera with antimicrobial drugs, published in The Cochrane Library today.
Manure from dairy cows, which is commonly used as a farm soil fertilizer, contains a surprising number of newly identified antibiotic resistance genes from the cows' gut bacteria. The findings, reported in mBio- the online open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology, hints that cow manure is a potential source of new types of antibiotic resistance genes that transfer to bacteria in the soils where food is grown.
Synthetic genetic circuitry created by researchers at Rice University is helping them see, for the first time, how to regulate cell mechanisms that degrade the misfolded proteins implicated in Parkinson's, Huntington's and other diseases.
Tetraphase Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today announced that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration has granted Fast Track designations for both the intravenous (IV) and oral formulations of the company's lead antibiotic candidate, eravacycline.
Tetraphase Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTPH) today provided a clinical update on its lead antibiotic candidate, eravacycline, and its Phase 3 global clinical program IGNITE (Investigating Gram-negative Infections Treated with Eravacycline).
Tetraphase Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today reported financial results for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013.
Onset Dermatologics, a leader in developing and commercializing prescription products for improving skin health, today announced the launch of a 75mg strength of MINOCIN (minocycline hydrochloride) Pellet-Filled Capsules.
A complex picture has emerged of changes in oral-health-related quality of life after at-home dental bleaching, with some measures improving and others deteriorating after the treatment, a Brazilian double-blind randomized clinical trial has shown.
Expanding Medicaid costs states a pittance compared with the financial and social benefits they'll receive. Denying your constituents a chance to get health insurance out of political pique comes perilously close to governmental malpractice.
Patients affected by a bacterial infection can usually be treated with an antibiotic. But sometimes a resistant bacterial strain is causing the infection. In a hospital setting, doctors ideally want to know if they are dealing with such bacteria and which drugs they should choose. But if the doctor runs a test it can take days to get a result. Now, a European project is paving the way for much more rapid tests using DNA biochips. The aim is to rapidly screen disease-causing bacteria using a microarray to spot which resistant genes are present in bacteria.
The risk of catching some nasty germ in the Hudson River just started looking nastier. Disease-causing microbes have long been found swimming there, but now researchers have documented antibiotic-resistant strains in specific spots, from the Tappan Zee Bridge to lower Manhattan.
A team of scientists at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University has discovered why long-term treatment with many common antibiotics can cause harmful side effects-and they have uncovered two easy strategies that could help prevent these dangerous responses.
Slipping bacteria some silver could give old antibiotics new life, scientists at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University reported June 19 in Science Translational Medicine.
