Biologists at The University of Texas at Austin have developed a method for rapidly screening hundreds of thousands of potential drugs for fighting infections , an innovation that holds promise for combating the growing scourge of antibiotic-resistant bacteria . The method involves engineering bacteria to produce and test molecules that are potentially toxic to themselves. The study was published in the journal Cell

The scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have discovered the workings of the first promising treatment for Marburg virus, a pathogen with the same pandemic potential as Ebola virus. The research builds on previous studies showing that an antibody called MR191 can neutralize Marburg.
Patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are more likely to use CPAP, or continuous positive airway pressure, when their use is telemonitored and they receive individualized, automated messages that reinforce therapy adherence, according to a randomized, controlled trial published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
According to a study led by Rutgers University-New Brunswick scientists, the process can also make those cells divide too quickly, posing a cancer risk. This can restore hearing by injecting stem cells into the inner ear and stem cells can be converted to auditory neurons that could reverse deafness. This study published in Stem Cell Reports.
A complete cure for tuberculosis has eluded scientists for more than a century but, now, a Montreal team of researchers may have discovered a new weapon to combat this global killer. The team is re-programming immune cells to kill TB. These groundbreaking findings were published in the journal Cell .
According to a new study, researchers from Brown University have identified an enzyme that appears the regulate the physiology of both fat types in mice, decreasing inflammation in white fat tissue, while promoting the ability of brown fat to burn calories. New study in mice and humans suggests that an enzyme called SNRK suppresses inflammation in obesity-related 'white fat' while increasing metabolism in heat-producing 'brown fat,' making SNRK an intriguing target in the battle against obesity.
A new study, published in European Eating Disorders Review, has shown that receiving cross-sex hormone therapy (CHT) can help to reduce the feelings of body dissatisfaction associated with eating disorders including anorexia and bulimia in transgender people.
Researchers That Have Reported bowel injury was significantly more frequent With laparoscopic surgery and may be related to the potential risk of inserting a trocar into the abdomen distended to open When Compared to abdominal surgery . The study findings published in Annals of Surgery.
The study says that researchers have declared that attempts to standardize reporting and cytological criteria for ?ne-needle aspiration of thyroid nodules and was first introduced in 2009, has been updated from The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology (TBSRTC). Although much of the original TBSRTC remains the same, several "enhancements" have been introduced in the 2017 version based on new data and developments in the field. This was published in thyroid.
Scientists at The University of Manchester have discovered that most people with osteoarthritis can be subdivided into two distinct disease groups, with implications for diagnosis and drug development. The study was published in an international journal Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases.
A new analysis of genital human papillomavirus (HPV) in men shows that infection with one HPV type strongly increases the risk of reinfection with the same type. In fact, men who are infected with the type responsible for most HPV-related cancers are 20 times more likely to be reinfected within one year. This increased risk suggests that infection confers no natural immunity against HPV, as is often the case with other viruses.
