Tick Borne Diseases Pathogens Transmission

Tick Borne Diseases Pathogens Transmission

Rocky Mountain spotted fever organisms generally take between one and three hours for transmission to occur; so attaching ticks need to be removing quickly. In most tick borne diseases; the tick needs to feed for some amount of time before any pathogens it is carrying are transmitting to the animal whose blood it’s eating. But…

Fungal Infection Reveals Genetic Vulnerability In Hmong

Fungal Infection Revealing Genetic Vulnerability

The fungus, Blastomyces dermatitidis, fungal infection majorly finding naturally in wet soil and in decomposing wood throughout the Great Lakes region and the Mississippi Valley; can cause flu-like illness and in severe cases, death. Genetic differences are hypothesizing to underlie ethnic disparities in incidence rates of the endemic systemic mycoses, including blastomycosis. But outbreak, the state…

Gut Microbiota Are Disrupting By Antibiotics

Gut Microbiota Are Disrupting By Antibiotics

Clostridium difficile is an opportunistic pathogen; that establishing in the colon when the gut microbiota are disrupting by antibiotics or disease. The pathology of clostridium difficile is primarily mediating by two homologous exotoxins, TcdA and TcdB; which target and disrupt the colonic epithelium, leading to diarrhea and colitis. The study have showing that TcdB is…

Novel Antibiotics Effective Against Gram-Positive And Gram Negative

Novel Antibiotics Effective Against Gram-Positive And Gram Negative

The widespread bacterial antimicrobial resistance diminishes the clinical efficacy of antibiotics; threating the health of humans and animals. There is serious concern about the rise of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” now resistant to many antibiotics. The dramatic increase in antibiotic resistance makes infectious diseases a challenge for medicine worldwide. The total deaths from methicillin-resistant S. aureus are now comparable…

Ancient Evolution Of The Widespread Human Gut Virus crAssphage

Ancient Evolution Of The Widespread Human Gut Virus crAssphage

The virus is both highly abundant in the human gut and represents an entirely new viral family. With this study, able to expand and understanding of the diversity and evolutionary history of the human microbiome globally. study showing that the virus was finding in the sewage of more than one-third of the world’s countries. Additionally,…

Nanochitosan Antimicrobial Activity Against Streptococcus Mutans

Nanochitosan Antimicrobial Activity Against Streptococcus Mutans

Microorganisms interact synergistically in forming dual-species biofilms; The onset of ECC starts with formation of biofilms from cariogenic microorganisms, dominated by Streptococcus mutans and Candida albicans. Previous work showed that glucosyltransferase (GTF) enzymes produced by S. mutans could bind to the surface of C. albicans cells; making C. albicans produce glucan as a component of extracellular polymeric substances and nanochitosan antimicrobial…

Seagulls Carry Drug-Resistant Bacteria That Lead Serious Infections

Seagulls Carry Drug-Resistant Bacteria That Lead Serious Infections

Bacteria are a type of biological cell. They constitute a large domain of prokaryotic microorganisms; in the study researchers finding Australian seagulls carry drug-resistant bacteria; that could lead to serious infections in the human beings. The gulls became infected after coming into contact with human faeces, a report published this week in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy suggested, likely through sewage…

Therapeutic Strategy Against Multidrug Resistant Bacteria

Therapeutic Strategy Against Multidrug Resistant Bacteria

The team of researchers using this combination of antibiotics to destroy the enzymes; present in the cell walls of the bacteria. It is especially effective against the CL232 strain of P. Aeruginosa; The team finding that when they using the ceftazidime avibactam fosfomycin combination; the progression of the bacteria multiplication was significantly halting. The team…

Boreal Acid Sulfate Soil Microbial Communities

Boreal Acid Sulfate Soil Microbial Communities

Metal sulfide-rich sediments occur widely in many coastal areas surrounding the Gulf of Bothnia region of the Baltic Sea. Since the last ice age; land uplift has resulted in these sediments rising above the sea level; and due to the typically high economic value of coastal areas; Microbial being draining for e.g. infrastructure or agricultural…

Proteins Induced Antibiotic Hypersensitivity In MRSA

Proteins Induced Antibiotic Hypersensitivity In MRSA

MRSA targets all parts of the body, from the surface to the internal organs, proteins  and is the leading cause of wide-spread and potentially lethal infectious diseases including necrotizing pneumonia, necrotizing fasciitis, severe sepsis, Waterhouse Friderichsen syndrome, endocarditis, osteomyelitis, and bacteremia. Using smart strategies, MRSA strains gain resistance to antibiotics, such as utilizing the multifunctional…

Bacteria Inducing Durable Tumor Regression

Bacteria Inducing Durable Tumor Regression

The study combining their expertise in synthetic biology; and immunology to engineer a strain of bacteria able to grow; and multiply in the necrotic core of tumor. When bacteria numbers reach a critical threshold, the non-pathogenic E. coli are then programmed to self destruct; allowing for effective release of therapeutics; and preventing them from wreaking…

E. coli Infection

Tamoxifen May Help Fight The Lethality Of E. coli Infection

E. coli Infection; Shiga toxin–producing Escherichia coli (STEC) infect more than 100,000 individuals each year and are a major cause of lethal food-borne infections. But STEC produce two related toxins, Shiga toxin 1 (STx1) and 2 (STx2), which kill cells by blocking ribosomal protein synthesis Stopping the spread of Shiga toxins released by E. coli bacteria; which are…
