Researchers reported the biochemical and genetic characteristics of a novel Metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs), ElBla2, from the marine bacterium Erythrobacter litoralis HTCC 2594. The enzyme has a higher amino acid sequence similarity to New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase-1 (NDM-1) (56%) than any previously reported MBL.

As the role of primary care physicians play an important role in controlling risk factors for coronary heart disease and stroke, the team hypothesized that longer road-distance to a primary care physician, which may be linked to poor primary care accessibility, may be a significant risk factor for death from stroke and/or ischemic heart disease. However, a new research has reported that longer road-distance to a primary care facility may increase the risk of stroke mortality.
