For bacteria facing a dose of antibiotics, timing might be the key to evading destruction. In a series of experiments, Princeton researchers found that cells that repaired DNA damaged by antibiotics before resuming growth had a much better chance of surviving treatment.

According to a study, researchers suggested that taking a multivitamin(MV) and mineral supplements do not prevent heart attacks, strokes or cardiovascular death. The study was published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, an American Heart Association journal.
Imagine a pathogen that infects completely healthy people and can cause blindness in one day and flesh-eating infections, brain abscesses, and death in just a few days. Now imagine that this pathogen is also resistant to all antibiotics.
On a humid afternoon in Kunipara slum, one of Bangladesh’s largest informal settlements, a group of young women sit in a circle on the floor of a health care center run by BRAC, the world’s largest development organization.
The National Health Agency (NHA), the apex body for implementation of the Centre's ambitious Ayushman Bharat-National Health Protection Scheme launched a formal process to empanel public and private hospitals to achieve universal health coverage. The objective is to improve access for the most vulnerable and unreached sections of the population and holistically address healthcare by covering prevention, promotion and ambulatory care at primary, secondary and tertiary levels.
Anaplasmosis, a tick-borne febrile disease, can be carried by wild mammals before being transmitted to humans through a tick bite. Now, researchers reporting in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases have found that Anaplasma bacteria alter the patterns of other microbes in the spleens of mice and shrews.
The ability to predict which virus will cause the next epidemic is a science, an art, and a gamble. We have learned through our work in Venezuela that it is always a good idea to pay attention to the cryptic viruses.
With many recreational triathletes and runners ramping up their training in hopes of getting a personal best this summer, a new measure of stress in the body demonstrates that more is not better when it comes to endurance sports training.
Aiming to reduce cancer risk, improve the understanding of cancer outcomes, and promote cancer health equity in our most vulnerable populations at the community level, the Rutgers School of Public Health and Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey have recruited Anita Y. Kinney, Ph.D., as Director of the Center of Cancer Health Disparities at the Rutgers School of Public Health and Associate Director of Cancer Health Equity and Engagement at Rutgers Cancer Institute.
The results of a study presented today at the Annual European Congress of Rheumatology (EULAR 2018) demonstrate that canakinumab significantly reduced the rate of gout by more than half compared to placebo, regardless of baseline serum urate level
One reason we are supposed to eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables is that they contain nutritious compounds called antioxidants. These molecules counteract the damage to our bodies from harmful products of normal cells called reactive oxygen species (ROS)
A team at the University of Manchester have developed a novel stem cell gene therapy approach to treat children with a devastating genetic disease. The approach is currently being developed for the clinical trial in patients with the disease
