Zika Virus Infection Showing No Effect On Secondary Infection

Zika Virus Infection Showing No Effect On Secondary Infection

The study showing that infections with either Zika virus or dengue virus; has no apparent effect on the clinical course of subsequent infection with the other virus. Zika virus and dengue virus are genetically and antigenically related flaviviruses that now co-circulate in much of the tropical and subtropical world. This work is timely, giving recent…

Elastic Polymer With Broad Spectrum Antimicrobial Properties

Elastic Polymer With Broad Spectrum Antimicrobial Properties

As the polymer’s antimicrobial properties stem from its unique molecular architecture; which attracting water to a sequence of repeat units; that are chemically modifying (or functionalizing) with sulfonic acid groups. When microbes come into contact with the polymer; water on the surface of the microbes interacts with the sulfonic acid functional groups in the polymer…

Vulnificus Bacteria Destroys Tissues In Infection Areas

Vulnificus Bacteria Destroys Tissues In Infection Areas

Major cases reporting on the flesh eating bacteria; the bacteria knowing as the Vibrio vulnificus which surviving on the salt water maximum seeing in the beaches. As this condition causing by a flesh eating bacteria that destroys tissues in infection areas. V. vulnificus is most commonly found in the warm waters of the states bordering the warm…

Cigarette Smoke Make Bacterial Strains More Resistant To Antibiotics

Cigarette Smoke Make Bacterial Strains More Resistant To Antibiotics

Cigarette smoking and tobacco smoking becoming leading preventable cause of death all over the word. But this smoking becoming the major risk factor for many pathologies; and Cigarette smoke can make MRSA bacterial strains more resistant to the antibiotics. But in addition, cigarette smoking exposure can be making some strains. The strains of microbs like…

Antibiotic Resistant Strains Of Klebsiella Pneumoniae

Antibiotic Resistant Strains Of Klebsiella Pneumoniae

The study finding that antibiotic resistant strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae; an opportunistic pathogen that can cause respiratory and bloodstream infections in humans; are spreading through hospitals. But Certain strains of K. pneumoniae are more resistant to the carbapenem antibiotics; that representing the last line of the defence in treating infections and are therefore regarding as extremely…

Assessment For Salmonella Detection And Characterization Methods

Assessment For Salmonella Detection And Characterization Methods

As supply of food becoming safer as the food industry shifting to the high-resolution; whole-genome sequencing which examining the full DNA of a given organism all at once. This move to make sequencing ubiquitous will lead to the consistently reliable detection of salmonella. As Salmonella contamination have been associating with ready to eat low moisture…

Bacterial And Fungal Species Inhabiting The Intestines

Bacterial And Fungal Species Inhabiting The Intestines

The study reporting that among hundreds of bacterial and fungal species inhabiting the intestines; abundance of the single fungus Candida tropicalis was positively correlated with two types of bacteria in CD patients; Serratia marcescens and Escherichia coli. As study further showing that the three pathogens joined forces to form a powerful biofilm a thick; slimy…

Cholera Detection Labs In Smartphones

Cholera Infection Detection Labs In The Smartphones

An innovative study on the cholera infections; developing an Cholera detection lab smartphone enabling platform to be beta testing by worldwide leading hospital in cholera research. Cholera is an infectious disease that causes severe watery diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and even death if untreated. It is causing by eating food or drinking water…

Microbial Flora Often Harbors Urinary Tract Infection

Microbial Flora Often Harbors Urinary Tract Infection

The study showing that gut microbial flora often harbors urinary tract infection causing strains. It was not certain whether pandemic; drug-resistant strains have distinct moorage patterns in the gut or lower urinary tract of healthy people. This is clinical concern because disease causing E. coli bacteria can transfer from the digestive tract to the female…

Chronic Infections By Waking Up Sleeping Bacteria

Chronic Infections By Waking Up Sleeping Bacteria

As every bacterial population harbors are a small subpopulation of so knowing as the persisters; that are transiently antibiotic tolerant. The research study identifying a mechanism of how the sleepy bacteria wake up. This finding is important, as sleepy cells are often responsible for the stubbornness of chronic infections. But the study findings reveal new…

Multidrug Resistant Microorganisms In The Netherlands

Multidrug Resistant Microorganisms In The Netherlands

The emergence and spread of multidrug resistant microorganisms is a serious threat to transnational public health. Therefore, it is vital that cross-border outbreak response systems are constantly prepared for fast, rigorous, and efficient response. The study trying to improve transnational collaboration by identifying, visualizing, and exploring two cross-border response networks that are likely to unfold…

Surveillance For Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

Surveillance For Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and infections due to antibiotic-resistant organisms are leading causes of morbidity and mortality. A large consortium of healthcare facilities dedicating to conducting high-quality studies relating to infection prevention and control and antibiotic stewardship. But the study demonstrating that surveillance for antibiotic-resistant bacteria continues to be a core focus for healthcare facilities. As…
