With antibiotic resistance spreading worldwide, there is a strong need for new technologies to study bacteria. EMBL researchers have adapted an existing technique to study the melting behavior of proteins so that it can be used for the study of bacteria. Molecular Systems Biology published their results — allowing researchers worldwide to start using the technique.

Sixty million people in sub-Saharan Africa live at risk of African sleeping sickness, a disease caused by parasites transmitted through the tsetse fly. In the late stage of the disease, when the parasite crosses the blood-brain barrier, the results are oftentimes fatal.
Frozen corn and possibly other frozen vegetables produced in a company in Hungary are the likely source of an outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes that has been affecting Austria, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Despite the product recall ordered by the Hungarian Food Chain Safety Office, new cases may still emerge, says the updated risk assessment published by ECDC and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
Young pitchers who exceed pitch count limits are more prone to elbow injuries. Season statistics of players were compared relative to pitch count limits.
According to a study, researchers found successful apps for the diagnosis of skin cancer to market, there is a concern that a lack of testing is risking public safety. The research, outlined at the British Association of Dermatologists' Annual Meeting in Edinburgh, reviewed the medical literature on skin cancer apps to explore the number of apps on the market, ascertain how accurate they are, and what the benefits and limitations of these technological solutions are. Examples of apps include teledermatology, photo storage, and risk calculation.
Limiting breast cancer screening to women at higher levels of risk for the disease — and not offering it to women at lower levels — could improve cost-effectiveness, reduce overdiagnosis, and maintain the benefits of screening, conclude researchers from the United Kingdom. The results are published online in JAMA Oncology.
A study estimated that the existing emergency department would be redesigned with a patient-centered triage process along with dedicated mental health and substance use emergency space and creation of a psychiatric stabilization unit.
According to a new study, the researchers examined breathing in additional oxygen improves the function of blood vessels in the brain of people with breathing difficulties caused by lung conditions. The study was published in Experimental Physiology. These findings could have implications for future research aiming to prevent the development of diseases affecting the brain, such as dementia.
Scientists have long known that an imbalance in brain chemistry can lead to depression. Researchers have taken this knowledge step further, examining what happens inside the brain's cells in order to better understand how depression occurs. The study was published in Frontiers in Neuroscience.
